Biologist Shares Expertise On Evolution
Considered a leading expert on the controversial debate between science and religion, Kenneth Miller, evolutionary biologist and author of the critically acclaimed 1999 book Finding Darwin’s God, prompted a thought-provoking discussion surrounding the debate during the Witt Series-sponsored IBM Endowed Lecture in the Sciences and Lawrence Colloquium on Science and Religion, Oct. 13.
Miller, a believer in evolution who also believes in God, contends that, properly understood, evolution adds depth and meaning not only to a strictly scientific view of the world, but also to a spiritual one.
A professor of biology at Brown University, Miller has written major articles for numerous scientific journals and magazines, including Nature, Scientific American, Cell and Discover. He has also appeared on PBS as a scientific commentator and has received multiple awards for outstanding teaching in his career.
