Science is Topic of Premiere Event in DC

From Eric Metaxas and Socrates in the City:
For years it's been our plan to bring the wit and wisdom of Socrates in the City to cities beyond New York! We've already done that in San Francisco, Chicago, Dallas, and Fort Worth -- and will continue to do so in those places. But now, on March 15th, Socrates in the City will hold its premier event in Washington DC!
Stephen Meyer
Our inaugural speaker will be the esteemed scientist and I.D. proponent Dr. Stephen Meyer of Seattle's famous Discovery Institute. Perhaps you've seen him in the "Expelled" documentary hosted by Ben Stein a few years ago. If you have ever wanted to know something more about the debate concerning what is science and what isn't science, this is your opportunity to hear -- and to question -- one of I.D.'s most brilliant advocates.

The event will be held in the spectacular University Club on 16th Street in downtown DC. Because of Dr. Meyer's popularity, we expect this event to sell out, so if you want to be in on the first ever SITC event in our nation's capital, please register today! We will also be having a Patron's Dinner immediately following. Details are at our website. Please visit and register by clicking here.
We look forward to seeing you there on March 15.
