INTELLIGENT DESIGN AND THE
ASSAULT ON SCIENCE AND RELIGION
Wednesday, September 30th - 4:30 p.m.
St. Francis Room
Presented by:
Dr. M. Lee Allison, State Geologist of Arizona
Director, Arizona Geological Survey
 
Dr. M. Lee Allison was Policy Advisor for Science and Energy to Gov. Kathleen Sebelius of Kansas in 2005 when the Kansas State Board of Education put Darwin on trial as the culminating event in a six-year long battle to impose the teaching of certain religious beliefs, including Intelligent Design, in primary and secondary science classes.  Dr. Allison worked together with others in the State and nation to help assure that science classes covered scientific topics and not include supernatural explanations of natural phenomena.  The circumstances surrounding this case focused national attention of the teaching of Evolution, Creationism and Intelligent Design.  Dr. Allison will discuss the nature of the controversy and provide commentary on this important topic.
