August 22, 2008: Kenneth R. Miller
Presented as part of the B&ECPL’s Meet The Author Lunchtime Library Series in conjunction with WBFO-FM, this edition features Kenneth R. Miller, author of Only a Theory: Evolution and the Battle for America's Soul. At the dawn of the twenty- first century, the debate over Darwin's theory of evolution is nearly as contentious as it was in the notorious Scopes trial a century ago. Today, however, people who believe that evolution is "only a theory" have put their hopes in a concept known as Intelligent Design. In Only a Theory, Kenneth Miller dissects the claims of the ID movement in the same incisive style that marked his testimony as an expert witness in Pennsylvania's landmark 2005 Dover evolution trial.
