PROGRAMS: 'God, Darwin, Design'; Legal aid mission

By Dave Jones on March 23, 2007 in University

'GOD, DARWIN, DESIGN': Kenneth Miller, author of Finding Darwin's God: A Scientist's Search for Common Ground Between God and Evolution, is scheduled to deliver a talk titled "God, Darwin and Design: Faith and Certainty in the Scientific World," starting at 8 p.m. April 3 in the Sciences Lecture Hall. Miller, a professor of biology at Brown University, is a prominent defender of evolution and a critic of "intelligent design." His talk is part of the Storer Life Sciences Major Issues in Biology series and is co-sponsored by the Newman Center at UC Davis as the second annual Teilhard de Chardin Lecture in Science and Religion.

LEGAL AID MISSION: As this issue of Dateline went to press, 11 law students were in New Orleans, helping to rebuild a neighborhood, advocate for exploited laborers and re-establish a legal aid organization. The students, members of the Humanitarian Aid Legal Organization, a new student group at the law school, journeyed to New Oreleans for a week as part of a national law student movement to help rebuild and serve legal and social justice organizations in the areas devastated by hurricanes Katrina and Rita. The students are scheduled to participate in a noon forum April 5 in the Wilkins Moot Court Room of King Hall, to talk about their journey.
