UNINTELLIGENT DESIGN: The Scars of Human Evolution

UNINTELLIGENT DESIGN:
The Scars of Human Evolution

Departing from our usual dialogue format, this special Valentine’s Day symposium brings together eight experts on human biology to spotlight the defects and deficiencies of the human body— the clumsy compromises in the framing of our teeth, feet, backs, bottoms, and birthings that reflect our history as made-over apes. Taking their cue from Wilton Krogman’s 1951 classic “The Scars of Human Evolution,” our participants will demonstrate and discuss how and how far the human body fails by the standards of intelligent design.
