Next Show: Evolution

Posted in upcoming shows by Desiree on February 1, 2009

This week we’ll be speaking with Dr. Greg Laden, scienceblogger and and biological anthropologist, about evolution. 

According to a 2007 poll by Angus Reid Strategies, most Canadians accept the theory of evolution.

59 per cent of respondents think human beings evolved from less advanced life forms over millions of years. 22 per cent believe god created human beings in their present form within the last 10,000 years, and 19 per cent aren’t sure.

Whichever percentage you’re a part of, Dr. Laden will be live on air to answer all your questions. 

And he went to Harvard, so he knows

See you Friday at 6pm!

    While Canada’s doing okay, I think Alberta’s somewhere hovering around 50%. We’re the redneck bible-belt of Canada.

    As the only province with a creation museum, this unfortunately does not surprise me.

    “And he went to Harvard, so he knows. ”

    That sounds suspiciously like an appeal to authority.

    It was! You win the “Spot the Logical Fallacy” prize!

    Note: Prize may consist solely of that sentence.
