Darwin Day at Revolution Books NYC

Dave Fitch, Sam Datta and I will be speaking about Darwin Sunday at 4PM at Revolution Books in NYC (146 West 26th b/t 6th and 7th Ave).


Presentations followed by questions and discussion of Darwin's epic breakthrough, the theory of evolution, and its implications for science and a scientific approach to the world.

Dave Fitch teaches evolution at New York University, and will speak on how Darwin uncovered the reality of branching evolution, and how Darwin used the scientific method to distinguish between alternative hypotheses.

John Dennehy teaches microbiology and the evolution of infectious disesases at Queens College and CUNY Grad Center, and will talk about how important evolution is in understanding how germs develop resistance to antibiotics.

Sam Datta, on behalf of Revolution Books, will speak on the science of creation and the myth of creationism--knowing what's real and why it matters.

Hope to see you there!
