Members of our audiences are given free copies of a 45-page book,
Alternative to Darwinism and Creationism Based on Free Will.
The book opens with the ideas behind the play (above), adds more
detail about those ideas, then it continues with sample chapters of our
books. This title is available in print from Amazon but is also free to
view as a pdf here on our site, see below. An edition for professionals
in the humanities about the sciences’ offer of a “consilience” based
on darwinism recommends responding with a humanities’ consilience
based on an alternative theory of evolution.
Imagine Darwin introducing Galileo to evolution for the first
time. What would this master of maths and logic make of
Darwin's account? Would he be impressed? Turns out, he
isn't. In fact, he decides he can come up with a better theory of evolution
and win for himself fame equal to Darwin's. This 90-minute play is at the same time a
modern comedy about two cranky old men jockeying for power and a classic
philosophical dialogue about one of the major issues of our day: what does it mean for
human nature that we evolved? The play is an amusing exercise in critical thinking,
suitable both for humanities students with an interest in human nature and a public hungry
for some original thinking. To arrange a free performance, email.
OK, it isn’t really Darwin, but it’s the next best thing--publisher of
this site looking and even sounding like Darwin. Besides talking up
our books and performing the Darwin-Galileo dialogue (above)
he offers 20-60 minute presentations on how to make evolution
the foundation of all our origin stories. Appearances available
free within the mid Hudson Valley and NYC-Metro area. Email
