NoPhi (16-3)

Wed. November 6th

In class we discussed the various stages of Darwinian evolution and the probablities of it's likely hood and if the factual evidence that supports it is being interpreted correctly. Also the discussion of religion and it's capability with evolution. Is science a road block for religion or can it work in harmony?

Dr. Oliver asked us to come up with any questions we might have for Carlin Romano and post them so he can access them in time for the Fall Lyceum.
