Conversation between Karl Giberson and Michael Shermer in NYC

Anyone Interested in joining me?

Invites you to a conversation between 

Karl W. Giberson 
author of Saving Darwin (HarperOne) 
and Michael Shermer magazine 

Raised a fundamentalist, Giberson firmly believed in creationism during his college years. But while working on his Ph.D. in physics, he began to doubt that science could have gotten everything as thoroughly wrong as the creationists suggested. In Saving Darwin, he paints a clear picture of the creation/evolution controversy and explores its intricate history, from Darwin to the current culture wars, carefully showing why – and how – it is possible to believe at the same time in both God and modern evolutionary science.

35 West 44th Street, New York City
