Rev. David Kidd will speak to a joint meeting of Americans United and the Sunday Assembly on Darwin Day (Sunday, Feb. 12). David will lead off with his experiences teaching anthropology before he became a minister. (He served 36 years at Hillsboro Presbyterian Church.) He will explain the importance of evolution and what happens when a youth is brought up taught creationism and then gets into high school or college and encounters science. He may shock you when he says that one-third of Americans reject evolution entirely. We will also learn more about Charles Darwin and the uproar when his work was first made public in 1859.
After the introductory talk by David Kidd, there will be a time for questions for him or about church-state issues, some of which will be fielded by people from Americans United. Diana Page will tell what legislative issues we are following at that time.
Refreshments and conversations will start at 5:30 and the program at 6. (AU brings nibbles or sweets; S/A brings drinks.) The location is the community room of West Police Precinct, 5500 Charlotte Pike in Nashville. If you arrive late, you might have to look for parking nearby, since the lot is not huge.
