Chris Rauch, former VP of Americans United for Separation of Church and State, will be giving a presentation called Evolution and American Science Education.

This year marks the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin’s birth and the 150th anniversary of his famous book On the Origin of Species, which made the scientific case for the theory of evolution by natural selection. Despite the scientific success of the theory, the American public does not wholeheartedly accept the theory of evolution. In fact, an anti-evolution movement has a long history in the United States. The presentation will explore the anti-evolution movement and science education in America, including new K-12 science standards for Washington State.

Chris Rauch is a systems engineer with a passion for philosophy and science. He has served as Vice President for local chapters of Americans United for Separation of Church and State, and believes religious liberty and the integrity of science are important values worth defending.

Then join us for the Seattle Atheist Town Hall. This month’s subject is “On Becoming an Atheist.” We want you to share your stories on what your transformation from theist to atheist was like.

No admission charge, but if you could bring a (non-peanut product) canned good for our SeasonLESS Food Drive, we would appreciate it. Many thanks!
