The facts in the ongoing debate about evolutionary theory and intelligent design will be discussed during a Saturday Physics Series talk March 18 at the University of Colorado at Boulder.

Jamie Nagle, an associate professor of physics at CU-Boulder, will present his talk on "Evolution, Intelligent Design Creationism and Physics" at 2 p.m. in Duane Physics room G1B30. The presentation is free and open to the public and is intended for high school students, teachers and adults.

During the talk Nagle will discuss the credibility of both arguments, focusing on whether the debate brings new science to light or is an attack on science itself. Nagle will draw on examples from physics to highlight how the scientific method works. He also will discuss the legal history of the debate.
