Evolution Sunday. February 11, 2007.
The Second Annual Evolution Sunday will occur on February 11, 2007. Your help is needed to make this day a success. This date is an opportunity for Christian congregations across the country (indeed, around the world) to join together to discuss the compatibility of religion and science. Evolution Sunday is being sponsored by The Clergy Letter Project, a collection of more than 10,400 members of the Christian clergy who have signed a letter asserting that Christianity and modern evolutionary science need not be at odds with one another.
Evolution and the Fossil Record. March 3-4, 2007.
On March 3-4, the Western Interior Paleontological Society will hold its bi-annual Founders Symposium at the Green Center at the Colorado School of Mines. The topic this year is "Inscribed in Stone: Evolution and the Fossil Record." This symposium is not specifically aimed at the "controversy" (although the topic is likely to come up) but consists of a series of lectures and workshops on biological evolution, the tools and methods used by geologists and paleontologists to study earth/life evolution, and what we learn from the fossil record. Some of our more prominent speakers will be Donald Prothero and Judy Scotchmoor. It is open to the public; however there is a registration fee. Continuing education credits are being obtained for K-12 teachers. For more information and/or to register, check the WIPS website.
