On the day after the anniversary of Charles Darwin’s birthday, prominent paleoanthropologist Ian Tattersall gave a public lecture about Darwin and his impact on what we know about human evolution. Tattersall, curator in the anthropology department at the American Museum of Natural History, then sat down for a conversation with Massimo Pigliucci, Chair of the Philosophy Department at City University of New York (CUNY) at Lehman College.

This event was sponsored by the Center for Inquiry in New York City, New York City Skeptics, and the student group Free Inquiry and Secular Humanism at CUNY-Hunter College. Below the jump is the video of the entire event.

These are my NYC friends who I met when I worked with CFI, where I still volunteer.
