Some folks have been asking to see the slides from my talk last week at OU. They’re a little opaque without my commentary, but here they are:
I’ll be giving a very similar talk at ASU on Friday for Sigma Xi.
great slides john…wish I could have heard the lecture. Please bring it to nyc soon thanks steve
These are great John!
I have a question about the “no such thing as a Darwinist” slide. While I understand that stance regarding our current debates about ID/creationism, do you extend it to the past as well? Do you believe that “Darwinist” is not a useful label to attach to historical figures or debates?
If someone asks me (and pays my way), I’ll go!
Yes. “Darwinism” and “Darwinist” have meaning only as historical entities. I make that point in the talk. Use of them today – usually by anti-evolutionists – is largely a pejorative.
Very nice John! Where may I ask is slide 61 from? I made a poster of that to hang in my lab, but I neglected to write down the source
Quite a few familiar images there.
I’ve used that phylogenetic image, too. It’s by David Hillis, Derreck Zwickil and Robin Gutell at the University of Texas, but I can’t now get to the original source — apparently their server is down. The Google cache of the press release about it is here.
The site is currently under maintenance and will be back shortly. New comments have been disabled during this time, please check back soon.
