Welcome to IndyBuzz

IndyBuzz provides information about Central Indiana's most stimulating and thought provoking events -- discussions and conferences, art exhibitions, films, music performances. It tells you what's happening … explains why you should be part of what’s happening. More than an events calendar, though, IndyBuzz tries to make events more meaningful for participants by suggesting an article or two to read before the event, recommending books or websites that will be sources of further information after the event, and pointing out related events that are worth attending.

March 4: Darwin Day Conference

A conference looking at the achievements of Charles Darwin, and how his scientific legacy is under assault today

When: Saturday, March 4, Saturday, March 4, 8:00 AM-6:00 PM
Where: IUPUI Lecture Hall LE 100

The Darwin Day Conference is organized by the Center for Inquiry Community of Indiana.

Darwin Day celebrations take place all over the world, usually on February 12, the anniversary of Darwin's birth. In 2009 Darwin hits the big two-oh-oh, expect a big deal for Darwin day then.

If you like this event, you should check out the CFI Community of Indiana's webpage: they have a lot of activities just about every week, from reading groups to picnics. You should also attend some of the events this spring such as the talks by astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson on February 8 and by cognitive psychologist Steven Pinker April 12. You also might check out the discussion of "Intelligent Design" the ACLU-indiana is staging at IRT February 7.
