Some news from ARI:
- Mary Ann and Charles Sures’ memoir of Ayn Rand, The Facets of Ayn Rand is now available on the web at http://www.facetsofaynrand.com.
- On Thursday, March 13, 2008, at 7:30 PM, Dr. Keith Lockitch will be speaking on “Darwin and the Discovery of Evolution” at the Hilton Costa Mesa (3050 Bristol Street, Costa Mesa, CA 92626). The lecture is free. More information is here.
I’m delighted by the topic, because in the process of grading student papers on the argument from design, I’ve realized that gross misunderstandings of evolutionary theory are quite common. It’s definitely a topic that I’d like to study more, not just because it’s relevant to the refutation of William Paley’s argument for design, but also because I find it intrinsically interesting. Biology has always been — by a long shot — the most interesting of the sciences to me.
- Brad Thompson published a great op-ed a while back entitled “An Open Letter to America’s Students–Will Atlas Shrugged Change Your Life Forever?” If you haven’t read it yet, you’ll find it here.
