February 12 is Charles Darwin's birthday
Join us, and the world wide celebration.
Darwin Day

Join us for a screening of 
When Crocs Ate Dinosaurs   
followed by a discussion of the science of evolution
and the importance of the scientific method.
Everyone needs to understand the basic facts of evolution as well as the essentials of the scientific method... When people are deprived of a scientific approach to reality as a whole, they are robbed of both a full appreciation of the beauty and richness of the natural world and the means to understand the dynamics of change not only in nature but in human society as well.

When Crocs Ate Dinosaurs

In this National Geographic flm, paleontologist Paul Sereno introduces five new species of crocodiles that lived amongst - and even hunted - dinosaurs in Cretaceous Africa. The diverse lifestyles of these bizarre animals shed new light on the evolution of crocodiles. Sereno contrasts the ecological roles of modern and ancient crocs and explores the amazing common adaptations that have allowed crocs to survive successfully for 200 million years. (50 minutes)
