College “Themester” on Evolution Includes Religion

themesterjpg Jean Robinson, director of “Evolution, Diversity, and Change,” the themed fall semester at Indiana University Bloomington, explains:

We’ll have a philosopher who does work on evolution and creationism; a religious scholar who tries to find a middle path for people who have strong faith beliefs to show how faith can live side-by-side with evolution; and at the end, we’ll have federal appeals court Judge John E. Jones III (who presided in a Pennsylvania case that determined intelligent design was religion and couldn’t be taught in schools)

We don’t want to shy away from controversy. We embrace the idea that universities are communities where we need to explore ideas and consider lots of different sides and question things in a safe place.
