(Feb. 14, 2007)--The UTSA College of Education and Human Development will present the film, "Flock of Dodos," followed by a panel discussion, from 6 to 8:30 p.m., Friday, Feb. 16 at Frio Street Building Room 1.406 on the Downtown Campus. The event is free and open to the public.
"Flock of Dodos" is the first feature-length documentary to present both sides of the evolution and intelligent design argument that recently was featured in Time and Newsweek magazines.

The film by American evolutionary biologist and filmmaker Randy Olson provides equal amounts of laughter and serious thought to prompt discussion between advocates of both intelligent design and evolution.
Following the screening, a panel discussion will feature four community leaders supporting both sides of the argument. Panelists will be Harlandale ISD administrator Steve Sippel, UTSA biology lecturer Craig Jordan, attorney Carl Williams and Rev. James Murguia of St. David Episcopal Church.
Free parking will be available in lot D-3, under the freeway cattycorner to the Downtown Campus at the intersection of S. Pecos-La Trinidad and Durango streets, adjacent to the Interstate 35 exit ramp.
