Join us Wednesday September 16,  2015 at 6:30 PM for “Darwin’s Dilemma presented by Jim Patterson.

The Cambrian explosion was one of the most spectacular events in the history of life. In a short window of geological time an abundance of new animals – and new animal body designs – arose fully formed without evidence of any evolutionary ancestors.

Charles Darwin viewed this as an inexplicable mystery. He had envisioned the evolution of life through a multitude of small, undirected steps. Yet, the fossil record reveals no such pattern of gradual development. Instead, early in the Cambrian period, compound eyes, articulated limbs, sophisticated sensory organs and skeletons burst into existence seemingly out of nowhere.

Darwin’s Dilemma explores the Cambrian explosion and the scientific controversy that still surrounds it. Where are the missing transitional forms that Darwin’s theory requires? Can any undirected evolutionary process explain the origin of animals?

Filmed on four continents, this fascinating 70-minute documentary examines some of the most important fossil discoveries ever made and with them, a mystery deeper than Darwin ever imagine. For the Cambrian explosion of life was actually an explosion of biological information – assembly instructions in DNA and embryonic blueprints that directed the development of the first complex animals.

Judge for yourself if the actual evidence truly points to evolution as we’re expected to accept as definitive scientific fact….or whether something more may be involved.  Jim will present additional discussion points and we’ll engage in a lively conversation afterwards.
