Science and the Human Person

Here's a great response to Bill Maher's mockumentary, "Religulous": a day-long seminar Dr. Richard Sternberg [evolutionary biologist with doctorates in biology (molecular genetics) and systems science (theoretical biology); former Staff Scientist with the National Institutes of Health, now Research Fellow with the Biologic Institute in Seattle] on "how the philosophy behind Darwinian evolution relates to John Paul II's vision of the human person and the spousal relationship. Dr. Sternberg will explain its influence on abortion, euthanasia and other current issues in bioethics. He will be joined by Dr. Paul A. Nelson [philosopher of biology] and Fr. Thomas Loya."

Dr. Sternberg's experience of being shunned by the scientific establishment after allowing the phrase "intelligent design" to be included in a journal he edited was the inspiration for the movie "Expelled."
