The Creation/Evolution Debate in the Muslim World

In what looks to be a fascinating presentation, Taner Edis an associate professor of physics at Truman State University and the author An Illusion of Harmony: Science And Religion in Islam will speak on "The Creation/Evolution Debate in the Muslim World" in Alderson Auditorium at the Kansas Memorial Union in Lawrence at 7:00 p.m., on April 3rd.

Edis was born and raised in Turkey. He is the author of The Ghost in the Universe: God in Light of Modern Science and Science and Nonbelief among other publications.

"In a cultural arena dominated by polemics," writes Ronald Numbers, author of The Creationists: From Scientific Creationism to Intelligent Design, "Taner Edis, a historically sensitive Turkish-American physicist, stands out as a voice of reason. I don't know of a better introduction to science and religion in Islam than An Illusion of Harmony."

Red State Rabble is eagerly awaiting his talk at KU.
