Talk at The Tech Museum in San Jose on Jan 15th

by Salman Hameed


I 'm headed to the west coast (actually this post is from 30,000 feet above Salt Lake City). The Tech Museum in San Jose has an exhibition Ingenious Innovations: Islamic Science Rediscovered (the exhibition is there until Feb 26th). Along with the exhibition, the museum is also hosting a lecture series. I will be speaking this coming Sunday at 2pm (Jan 15th) and the title of the talk is How do Muslims view science and evolution? The format is actually quite interesting. I will speak for about 20 minutes and the rest will be a dialogue with the moderator, Angie Coiro, and with the audience. This should be fun and I'm looking forward to it.

If you are in the area and are interested in the topic, c'mon over.

What an enlightening conversation we had in San Jose. Thanks so much for sharing your enthusiasm, your frankness, your insights. Oh, for more of this kind of communication and understanding in this country.

I've asked the Tech to take on the topic of visas and immigration from the Muslim world....they seem interested.

Cheers and thanks, Janet Cook

Thanks Janet. I enjoyed the conversation as well, and thought that the questions were really excellent and got to the heart of the matter.

Asad: Yes, it was taped. I will post it when it is available.
