Evolution in plain language
Date:9/11/2008

Boulder, CO and Madison, WI 10 SEPTEMBER 2008 The latest evidence about the theory of evolution and its importance of teaching it in classrooms are the subject of two public programs in early October, which are presented as part of a large scientific meeting that will draw upwards of 8,000 participants to Houston.

The two special programs include a Public Forum and a Teacher Forum, held in conjunction with the Joint Annual Meeting of the Geological Society of America, Soil Science Society of America, American Society of Agronomy, Crop Science Society of America, and Gulf Coast Association of Geological Societies. A question-and-answer session with the audience will follow both presentations.

Evolution Public Forum

Houston area residents and media are invited to attend "Understanding Evolution: A Public Forum," on Tuesday evening, 7 October, from 7 to 9 p.m., at the George R. Brown Convention Center, General Assembly Theater B. There is no charge for the program and registration is not required.

A panel of experts will give a non-technical presentation on the latest geological evidence for evolution, the finding of "missing" links, the importance of understanding evolution to modern societies, the nature of science, and why intelligent design should not be considered science.

"The records of the earth and of life are clear: over about 4 billion years, life appeared and evolved to what we have today," says panelist Jere Lipps, Curator of Paleontology, Museum of Paleontology; Professor, Department of Integrative Biology, University of California-Berkeley. Panelist and program moderator Roger Thomas, J.W. Nevin Professor of Geosciences, Department of Earth and Environment, Franklin & Marshall College; and Secretary of the Paleontological Society, adds, "We, the food we eat, and diseases that afflict us are all evolving togetherin ways that we intend and in ways that we cannot avoid, as a result of our creative
