PRINCIPLES and CONTROVERSIES of EVOLUTION
Lecture by David Seaborg
to Celebrate Darwin Day at Humanist Hall

David Seaborg will illuminate the principles of evolutionary biology and the controversies surrounding them. He will explain what natural selection -- the mechanism of evolution -- is and how it works; how new species originate; why some types of species evolve very rapidly, while others do not change for eons; why there are so many species of some types, such as insects, and less of others; which ecosystems (such as rainforests) have high species diversity and why; how much of evolution is due to natural selection and how much to random factors; how sex evolved and why this is so important to evoluton; sexual selection and sociobiology; the evolution of co-operation and altruism as opposed to selfishness; the evolution of color patterns; and the meaning of variation in evolution. All in one fantastic -- and funny -- lecture!

Sterling Bunnell will contribute to the discussions of David Seaborg's talk.

The doors of Humanist Hall will open at 12:00 pm for our Humanist Tea House.
