'Flock of Dodos' screenings in Raleigh

*N.C. Museum of Natural Sciences
/Downtown Raleigh/

**Thursday, January 18
"Flock of Dodos" screening with filmmaker, Randy Olson
7:00 p.m. Museum Auditorium
*Filmmaker and Evolutionary Ecologist , Dr. Randy Olson, presents his
new film */Flock of Dodos/*: /*The Evolution / Intelligent Design Circus.*/
"Flock of Dodos" is the first feature-length documentary to present both
sides of the Intelligent Design / Evolution clash and tries to make
sense of the issue by visiting Olson's home state of Kansas. The film
digs below the surface of the debate by examining the language being
used by both sides of this "circus" and the actual people presenting
each side. By doing so, Olson poses a serious question to the
scientific community as to who really is the "flock of dodos."
After the screening, Dr. Olson will give a presentation followed by a
Question and Answer session.

The Museum will host additional free screenings of "Flock of Dodos" at
the following times:
Saturday, February 3, 3:00 p.m.
Saturday, February 10, 3:00 p.m.
Monday, February 12, Time is TBA -- "Darwin Day"

We are hoping to have a panel of speakers in conjunction with the Darwin
Day screening. If you may be interested in participating on a panel to
further discuss this topic, please let us know.

The Museum is located at the corner of Jones and Salisbury Streets.

A new documentary, Flock of Dodos, is now out. The auteur, Randy Olson, is an "evolutionary ecologist with a Ph.D. from Harvard University." But he's also from Kansas originally, and he has made a film that apparently heaps a fair amount of scorn on both sides of the evolution debate: "Flock of…
