California Science Center Settles Suit with Intelligent Design Filmmakers

Hosted by

In 2009, the California Science Center in downtown Los Angeles rented its IMAX Theater to the American Freedom Alliance for a film to be followed by a panel discussion. Darwin's Dilemma advocates Intelligent Design, an alternative theory to evolution. The Center cancelled the screening, the Alliance sued, and the case dragged on until this Monday, when the Center paid the Alliance $110,000 and the Alliance declined an invitation to show the film after all. Edward Larson, Professor of Law at Pepperdine University, is the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Summer for the Gods: The Scopes Trial and Americans Continuing Debate Over Science and Religion.
