Stem Cell Biology 101 - Video Podcast

Wed, 24 Jan 2007 11:00:00 GMT

Although this doesn't regard evolution, it's another hot scientific topic that I was asked to talk about to the First Baptist Church of Colleyville Faith and Reason class. I thought that the Evolution 101 listeners might be interested in it- a further ethical discussion will be posted later to the Apologia podcast feed.(image)
