Los Angeles Premiere of Intelligent Design Film Moves to USC on Oct. 25th at 7pm

Those who live in the Los Angeles area are invited to attend a gala premiere screening of Illustra Media's new documentary, Darwin's Dilemma: The Mystery of the Cambrian Fossil Record next Sunday, October 25th at 7:00 pm at the University of Southern California. The event is sponsored by the American Freedom Alliance.

This premiere was originally scheduled for the California Science Center, but the Center canceled the event just a few days ago, leaving the organizers virtually no time to find a new location. If you live in the Los Angeles area, you can show your support for free speech to debate the evidence for intelligent design by attending this important event!

There is a free public reception starting at 5:30 pm. The film screens at 7:00 pm at the Embassy Auditorium of the Davidson Executive Conference Center at USC.

Tickets are available at the door or by calling the AFA office at (310) 444-3085. ($20 general admission; $10 for students) You may also download the registration/ticket order form at

Filmed on four continents, Darwin's Dilemma examines some of the most important fossil discoveries ever made and with them, a mystery deeper than Charles Darwin ever imagined. For the fossil record of the Cambrian Explosion does not reveal the gradual development of life forms as Darwin posited in his work, but a period in which compound eyes, articulated limbs, sophisticated sensory organs and skeletal frames burst into existence seemingly out of nowhere. Produced by Illustra Films Directed by Lad Allen. To read more about the movie go to www.darwinsdilemma.org. Following the premiere will be a panel discussion featuring Lad Allen (director), Jonathan Wells, author of Icons of Evolution and The Politically Incorrect Guide to Darwinism and Intelligent Design, and David Berlinski, author of The Devil's Delusion: Atheism and Its Scientific Pretensions.
