Unintelligent Design: The Scars of Human Evolution

Part 2: Panel Discussion
February 14, 2013
This colloquium brings together seven 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, and birthings that reflect our history as made-over apes. Taking their cue from Wilton Krogman’s 1951 classic paper “The Scars of Human Evolution,” our panelists discuss how and how far the human body fails by the standards of intelligent design.
