Intelligent Design Under Fire

In a rare opportunity, leading proponents of the intelligent design movement have invited their critics to ask them the hard questions about the validity of intelligent design theory on Friday, May 12 at Biola University.

The question of intelligent design has flooded the news this year with the Dover, Penn. trial over the place of ID in public education. With many questions still left unanswered about ID theory, this event will allow the public access to hear from top ID experts and its critics.

The event will be held in the format of a press conference. Panelists representing ID include Mike Behe, Professor of Biochemistry, Lehigh University and Senior Fellow Discovery Institute; Paul Nelson, Adjunct Professor, Biola University; Guillermo Gonzales, Assistant Research Professor of Astronomy, Iowa State University; Jonathan Wells, Senior Fellow, Discovery Institute; and Steve Meyer, Director and Senior Fellow of the Center for Science and Culture at the Discovery Institute, Seattle.

Those cross-examining the panelists will include: Antony Flew, noted philosopher; Keith Morrison of Dateline NBC; and faculty from Cal State Fullerton: Bruce H. Weber, Ph.D. Professor of Biochemistry; James R. Hofmann, Ph.D. Professor and Chair, Liberal Studies Department; and Craig M. Nelson, Ph.D. Lecturer, Department of Comparative Religion.

The event will be held in Sutherland Auditorium at Biola University from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. More than 1,000 attendees are expected.
