Speaker to Contrast Evolution, Intelligent Design

RELEASED: March 31, 2006

EAU CLAIRE — The Seminar on the History of Science at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire will present a lecture at 4 p.m. April 7 in Room 007 of Phillips Science Hall.

The lecture will be presented by Richard Bellon, visiting assistant professor in the Lyman Briggs School of Science at Michigan State University.

Bellon will speak on "A Considerable Revolution in Natural History: The 19th Century Triumph of Evolution and the 21st Century Failure of Intelligent Design." He will contrast the success of Darwin's scientific revolution with the failure of the intelligent design movement.

The Seminar on the History of Science is an interdisciplinary group of faculty, students and community members that meets regularly during the academic year to discuss a variety of topics in philosophy, mathematics, the natural sciences, the history of ideas and educational reform.

The seminar is subsidized by funding from seven university departments and the dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. The April 7 presentation also is receiving support from the departments of history and biology.

Bellon's lecture is free and open to the public.
