Primary Instructor:

Creationism and science both address the origin of the world and of the human beings living on it, from quite different perspectives. These perspectives are of both observations and deeply held beliefs, providing the opportunity for us to discuss how our belief systems interact with our attempts to learn about the world we live in. I plan on using this seminar to discuss key question and assumptions (hidden and otherwise) about origins, from both perspectives, to try and understand the perspectives themselves. We will also discuss some of the 20th and 21st Century history.

Intended Audience:

Undergraduates and graduate students are welcome, one course in biological anthropology and permission of instructor are required. Prior and/or current course work in human evolution or evolutionary archaeology are recommended.

Prerequisite — current or past enrollment in ANTHRBIO 365 or any other course discussing the fossil evidence for human evolution.
