Lecture, "Darwin and Design"

2/7/2010 - Lecture, "Darwin and Design"


On Sunday, February 7, Curator of Paleontology Eric Scott will present a lecture, “Darwin and Design,” at the 2pm at the San Bernardino County Museum.

            Life on earth is made up of millions of organisms that appear designed to live in specific areas or perform certain tasks with breathtaking efficiency. “From streamlined sharks powering through the oceans, to hoofed horses thundering across the plains, to winged birds soaring overhead—all these and many more appear to be beautifully adapted to their environments,” said Scott. “How did this adaptation arise? Does design imply a designer?” In this lecture, Scott will review the evidence for design and discuss its evolutionary origins.

            The San Bernardino County Museum is at the California Street exit from Interstate 10 in Redlands. The museum is open Tuesdays through Sundays and holiday Mondays from 9am to 5pm. On February 7, admission fees will be cut in half for visitors: adult admission will be $4; senior and military $3, student age 12 to 17 $2.50, and child age 5 to 12 $2. Children under age 5 and Museum Association members are admitted to the museum free of charge. For more information, visit
