LIBS 655 - DARWIN AND DIVINITY
Our course will center around discussions of the literature on evolution and creationism/intelligent design. We will read and discuss several chapters from Darwin?s Origin of Species, other material that Darwin wrote, and material written by modern evolutionists. We will also read and discuss relevant passages from the bibles and holy books of a cross section of the world?s religion. We will seek to understand the position of the creationist/intelligent movement by reading some material written by Philip Johnson, Wendell Bird, Henry Morris and others who are central to that movement. We will try to understand the opposing positions in important court cases involved with teaching evolution in public schools. We will look into the Scopes, Arkansas, Louisiana cases as well as the recent case in Pennsylvania. .The class will be run as a seminar with students expected to have read the assigned materials prior to class so they can fully participate in the discussion.
