Video: How do Muslims around the world view science and evolution?

by Salman Hameed

Here is the video of a talk I gave this past January at the Tech Museum in San Jose, California. The title is a bit misleading as it is hard to fully express the diversity of Muslim views on science and evolution. However, my goal here was to use the title to hit home the point on cultural and social plurality of the Muslim world. I actually enjoyed the format here - lecture for the first half an hour and then a conversation with host Angie Coiro. I think Angie was absolutely terrific and covered a lot of territory in her questions - ranging from evolution acceptance to Muslim freethinkers (on the last topic, also see the recent post on Radical Enlightenment and its connection to Islam).

Here is the video of the talk:
