C., Into the Classroom Media (Firm), PB Into the Classroom Media PP [Los Angeles, CA] YR 2006 AB This program is a presentation of a Daniel Dennett lecture and his views on Darwin's theory of evolution. Dennett considers Darwin₂s theory of evolution by natural selection the best single idea that anyone ever had. But it has also turned out to be a dangerous one. Science has accepted the theory as the most accurate explanation of the intricate design of living beings, but when it was first proposed, and again in recent times, the theory has met with a backlash from many people. What makes evolution so threatening, when theories in physics and chemistry seem so harmless? One problem with the introduction of Darwin₂s great idea is that almost no one was prepared for such a revolutionary view of creation.
