The Emperor’s New Theory - Evolution and the Battle with “Design”
Professor Miller will discuss attacks by special interest groups on evolution education, including the placement of warning stickers in his Biology textbook by the Cobb County Board of Education in 2002, and the recent attempts by Georgia Superintendent of Schools Kathy Cox to remove evolutionary theory, Big Bang theory, and plate tectonics from the Georgia K-12 curriculum.

On March 25th at 7:30 pm, Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur, GA will be hosting a public forum on evolution.
What do we mean by “evolution,” by “the theory of evolution”? For example, what makes for a scientific “theory”? What makes a theory reliable and how far is it reliable? How do we judge matters of science and faith, both for ourselves as individuals and as a state with a religiously diverse society?
