As the 2020 presidential election looms, are there just too many Democratic candidates in the race? Or, it it politically healthy for voters to be exposed to a rich range of creative, if contrasting, ideas? Both points of view have merit. Jim will introduce each argument and then we'll open the discussion.

Charles Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection, and his related theory of sexual selection, completely changed the way biologists approach the study of life. Yet there was a great deal that Darwin did not know, and it took more than a century before his theory was united with genetics, leading to the modern science of evolution. All in all, the course will focus on what Darwin knew, what he was right and wrong about, how modern biology and genetics have broadened his theory, why scientists find it so congenial, and why fundamentalists from many religions vehemently reject it.

Just 16 months out from the 2020 presidential elections, with tensions between the White House and the Congress still at boil, and with America's allies deeply troubled by our national direction, is the Trump era re-energizing or fizzling?
