Two hundred years after Charles Darwin’s birth, his idea of natural selection –that all life belongs to one family – has been widely accepted by the scientific community. So what’s the big deal behind all this?

Join us in a videoconference to ask Steve Jones: Why is Darwin’s idea so powerful? Does life really belong only to the strong? What does Darwin’s idea mean for us today?

Join us to understand. Saturday, 25 April 2009, 4:30 – 6:00 PM; The Forum, Fully Booked, Bonifacio High St. Bonifacio Global City, Taguig

Dr. Steve Jones is a Professor of Genetics at University College London and a Trustee of the British Council.

He is also the recipient of many awards, including the Royal Society Faraday Medal for the public understanding of science.

This Cafe Scientifique event is presented by The Mind Museum, in cooperation with Fully Booked, supported by Krispy Kreme.

    This is a very interesting article. I will bookmark this page. I have just googled and found this site since I am conducting my own research about Darwin’s theory.
