Coalition of Reason Thought Exchange (CoRTEx)

  • Print

Please join us for the next Coalition of Reason Thought Exchange (CoRTEx) meeting on Thursday evening, December 8th at 6:30pm. We will be presenting a video of a talk by Hector Avalos, professor of Religious Studies at Iowa State University and the author of several books about religion. Professor Avalos is an internationally recognized opponent of neo-creationism and the intelligent design movement, and is frequently linked to Guillermo Gonzalez, an astrophysicist and proponent of intelligent design who was denied tenure at Iowa State University in 2007. Avalos co-authored a statement against intelligent design in 2005, which was eventually signed by over 130 faculty members at Iowa State University. The talk by Professor Avalos is entitled "Why Intelligent Design is NOT Science". The video will be followed up by a joint panel/audience discussion on the video. We will also provide updates on the Coalition's projects and upcoming events. The event is free and open to the public. Visit us at
