At AAAS, Ken Miller on Evolution & Design
Kenneth Miller, a professor of biology and a leading defender of the theory of evolution, will argue that pro-Darwin forces need to acknowledge the public appeal of "intelligent design" and make the case that science itself, including evolutionary biology, is predicated on the idea of "design" - the correlation of structure with function that lies at the heart of the molecular nature of life. Miller will make his case in a Feb. 17, 2008, symposium titled "Communicating Science in a Religious America." A press release on Miller's presentation will be available Sunday, Feb. 17, 2008.

It's one factor that can help explain the religiosity gap.
- Sociologists have long observed a gap between the religiosity of men and women.

- The results suggest that risk-taking preferences might partly explain the gender differences in religiosity.
