New London, Connecticut - Michael Shermer (info), editor-in-chief of 'Skeptic Magazine' best-selling author and co-host and producer of the Fox Family television show 'Exploring the Unknown' will speak at Connecticut College on Tuesday, October 10 2006, at noon in the Ernst Common Room of the Blaustein Humanities Center.
Shermer's lecture at the college, which is free and open to the public, will focus on topics in his new book, 'Why Darwin Matters: The Case Against Intelligent Design' (Amazon UK | US). In the book, which debates evolution versus intelligent design, Shermer refutes the pseudo-scientific arguments behind intelligent design and demonstrates why conservatives and people of faith can and should embrace evolution.
The executive director of the Skeptics Society, Shermer is a contributing editor and monthly columnist for 'Scientific American' magazine, and is the host of the Skeptics Distinguished Lecture Series at the California Institute of Technology. He is also the science correspondent for KPCC radio, a National Public Radio affiliate in southern California.
