The Closing of the Scientific Mind: Join Us on October 23 in the Medved Studio for a Special Edition of the Science & Culture Update


Does science open minds, or close them? A "scientific view" is frequently taken as being basically synonymous with skepticism, questioning, and independent thinking. All good and wonderful things! Yet very often, self-proclaimed paladins of "science" are impatient with genuine skeptics, flee from debate, or find a variety of other creative ways to avoid having to confront challenges to their beliefs.

In the special October 23 edition of the Science & Culture Update on the Michael Medved Show, you'll have a chance to talk about science and skepticism, closed minds and open ones, live in the KTTH radio studio, with Mr. Medved, Darwin's Doubt author Dr. Stephen Meyer, and Evolution News & Views editor David Klinghoffer. All three are Discovery Institute senior fellows.

For the discussion, they'll take as a case in point the critical reception of Dr. Meyer's book, Darwin's Doubt: The Explosive Origin of Animal Life and the Case for Intelligent Design, which has sparked furious debate -- and also a great deal of artful dodging of the relevant scientific issues by opponents of the theory of intelligent design. Why are critics of ID so determined to flee from a fair fight?

Join us from 11:30 am to 3 pm. Sit in with Michael and see how he puts his national radio broadcast together every day. You'll get a unique behind-the-scenes peek at the production of the entire show.

Lunch will be served starting at 11:30 am and the program, as heard nationally, will air live from noon to 3 pm. Guests are welcome to come for the entire broadcast, or drop in for the Science & Culture Update starting at 1 pm. Seating is very limited for this special in-studio event and registration is required in advance. Due to radio security policies only registered guests will be allowed into the studio.

Where: KTTH/KIRO radio studios, 1802 Eastlake Avenue East, Seattle, 98102.
