Presentation by Jon Peters. Since the Human Genome was sequenced more than a decade ago, scientists have been mining it for evolutionary relationships. Several new discoveries have confirmed our shared ancestry with the apes, and has confirmed our exit out of East Africa tens of thousands of years ago. Dr. Peters has been active promoting secular humanism and rational thought with the Center For Inquiry (Portland). In 2008 he founded Secular Humanists of East Portland. He has been the recipient of several teaching awards.
