Atheist for Intelligent Design in Boulder. This is not a Joke.

The Center for Values and Social Policy in the Philosophy Department of CU Boulder is pleased to announce a "Think!" lecture on the teaching of intelligent design.

* What: "Think!" Lecture on "An Atheist Defends Intelligent Design" by
Professor Bradley Monton (CU Boulder)

* When: Tuesday, October 28th, 7:30 - 9:00 pm

* Where: Old Main Chapel, CU Boulder

"The doctrine of intelligent design has been maligned by atheists, but even though I'm an atheist, I'm of the opinion that the arguments for intelligent design are stronger than most realize. After trying to figure out what the doctrine of intelligent design actually is, I'll argue that it's legitimate to view intelligent design as science, that there are somewhat plausible arguments for the existence of a cosmic designer, and that intelligent design should be taught in public school science classes."

Bradley Monton is a professor of philosophy at CU Boulder specializing in philosophy of science, philosophy of physics, probabilistic/formal epistemology, philosophy of religion, and philosophy of time. One of his main research areas involves science-based arguments for the existence of God.

Doug, I just listened to the IDTheFuture podcast and Bradley Monton mentioned that he met you at the recent lecture he gave.

I am wondering how the lecture went and if there is an MP3 available?
