Scientists collaborate to show film about debate

“Flock of Dodos,” a movie poking fun at both sides in the evolution vs. intelligent design debate, will be shown for free at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 28, in the CUB auditorium. It is the first in a series planned by various WSU departments to celebrate Charles Darwin and evolutionary biology.
The year 2009 marks the 200th anniversary of Darwin’s birthday and the 150th anniversary of publication of his most famous thesis, “On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection.”
A panel discussion will follow the film. The panel is composed of faculty from different departments who want to illustrate the utility and unifying power of evolution. 
The movie, by evolutionary biologist and filmmaker Randy Olson, criticizes scientists for condescension and dodging debate. It criticizes intelligent design for religious presuppositions.
