High Plains Chautauqua: A Darwinian Conversation


A priest, a biologist, and Charles Darwin walk into a bar... That old yarn starts this brisk and entertaining conversation between Brian "Fox" Ellis; a Darwin Scholar, Father Jack Stapleton; minister of Trinity Episcopal Church, and Dr. Rob Reinsvold; Assistant Professor of Biology at the University of Northern Colorado.

The KUNC lecture series takes a step into High Plains Chautauqua for this wonderful and enlightening conversation that addresses the controversy between science, religion and Darwin's work. A packed house of 150 people enjoyed not only audience conversations on questions posed by the speakers, but thoughtful dialog and a civil discussion from each of the three presenters.

High Plains Chautauqua runs through Saturday August 6th, click HERE for a schedule of events. As always your feedback and comments are welcome below.
