* Why Celebrate Founders Day in February?

Founders Day will be celebrated this year on Sunday, February 15 at 10:30 a.m. in Neu Chapel. Founders Day ceremonies are held in observance of four important events in the history of the University of Evansville. On February 8, 1810, John C. Moore, founder of Moores Hill College, was born. In addition to contributing $3,000 and 12 acres to the school, Moore personally paid the school’s deficits until his death in 1871.

•  The story of the University of Evansville began 158 years ago on February 10, 1854, when Moores Hill Male and Female Collegiate Institute was incorporated. This fledgling institution was located in Moores Hill in Dearborn County, about 40 miles west of Cincinnati.

•  On February 17, 1919, the school was relocated and Evansville College was incorporated. The College achieved its first major academic goal in 1931 by winning accreditation from the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools.

•  Rapid growth and years of dedication to meeting the area’s higher education requirements were recognized by the state legislature’s action in renaming the school. On February 17, 1967, the University of Evansville was incorporated.

* Andiron Lecture by Derek Jones - Can Plants and Bacteria Think?

Derek Jones, assistant professor of philosophy, will be the speaker for the Andiron Lecture on Wednesday, February 4..The lecture will start at 4:00 p.m., in Eykamp 252, Ridgway University Center. A social gathering with beverages begins at 3:45 p.m.  His topic will be "Can Plants and Bacteria Think?"

Jones earned an MA in philosophy from the University of Houston in 2008 and a PhD in philosophy from Indiana University in 2013. He teaches courses in philosophy and cognitive science at UE and currently directs the cognitive science program. Jones has published and presented work on such topics as scientific explanation, self-knowledge, skilled behavior, and free will.

His work is guided by the broader project of understanding cognition and action as essentially embodied, biological processes. His forthcoming book, The Biological Foundations of Agency, is slated for publication in January 2016.

Despite substantial progress in cognitive science, researchers have been unable to agree upon a definition of cognition. A number of theorists have recently argued that human cognition should be understood as a specialized case of a broader form of intelligence that exists in humans and non-human animals alike. Some have gone so far as to attribute cognitive abilities to plants and bacteria. In this lecture, Jones will address the plausibility of such claims, arguing first that there is a genuine debate to be had about the cognitive status of simple biological systems (which are surprisingly interesting) and then providing a principled way of sorting cases.

For further information, call the series coordinator Annette Parks at 812-488-1070 or the William L. Ridgway College of Arts and Sciences.

 

Info You Should Know

* Celebrate Black History Month with a Little Know Fact— Do you know about the Friendship Nine?

Celebrate Black History Month with a little known fact, today, February 2!

Do you know about the Friendship Nine?

The Friendship Nine were a group of young activists who were jailed and charged for trespassing after a nonviolent protest of segregation. Years later all of their names have finally been cleared. In a long road to justice, the Friendship Nine’s convictions were thrown out of court by a South Carolina judge, cementing the legacy of the brave men.

The Friendship Nine included John Gaines, Thomas Gaither, Clarence Henry Graham, W.T. “Dub” Massey, Robert McCullough, Willie McCleod, James Wells, David Williamson, Jr., and Mack Workman – were named thus because eight of the men attended Friendship College in the town of Rock Hill. Gaither did not attend the school and was a field organizer of the CORE organization.

On January 30, 1961, the Nine traveled as a group to the whites-only McCrory’s establishment and staged a sit-in at a lunch counter that caused quite the stir. Inspired by other sit-in protests in North Carolina, the group had been planning the sit-in for months. The men walked into the variety store and were promptly arrested for trespassing after word of their plans got out to police.

Ernest Finney, a young civil rights attorney, represented the Nine in their court case. The group was found guilty and offered a choice of paying a fine of $100 or going to jail for 30 days of hard labor. The group opted for the labor, which galvanized protesters nationwide and gave the Southern Christian Leadership Committee (SCLC) the necessary boost needed to ramp up protests.

The Nine only served 28 days. They were let go early because prison officials didn’t want the national press to cover their story on the grounds of the prison farm where they were held. Author Kimberly Johnson wrote a children’s book about the men titled No Fear For Freedom, a huge part of how the Nine’s case was reopened. She met the Nine in 2011 and was inspired by their story.

* Timothy O'Brien Appears in American Sociological Review

Timothy L. O’Brien, assistant professor of sociology, is the lead author of a new study that finds that many U.S. adults — roughly one in five — are deeply religious, know a lot about science, and support many practical uses of science and technology in everyday life, but reject scientific explanations of creation and evolution. The study appears in the February issue of the American Sociological Review.

“We were surprised to find that many people who are knowledgeable about science and appreciative of its practical uses reject certain well-established scientific theories,” said O’Brien,

“This finding is particularly interesting because these people who view both science and religion favorably — people who hold what we call a post-secular perspective — have relatively high levels of education and income, and many social scientists assume that high levels of education and income, as well as positive views of science are incompatible with religiosity.”

But, O’Brien said the study calls that “common assumption” into question. “We find that many highly educated, well-informed, religious individuals accept scientific theories about topics such as geology, radioactivity, planetary motion, genetics, and probability while rejecting mainstream scientific accounts of evolution and the big bang,” he said.

Titled, “Traditional, Modern, and Post-Secular Perspectives on Science and Religion in the United States,” the study relies on nationally representative data on U.S. adults from the 2006, 2008, and 2010 waves of the General Social Survey. The study considers people who self-identified as Protestant, Catholic, Jewish, and followers of other faiths, as well as individuals who did not identify with a religious group.

As part of their analysis, O’Brien and his co-author Shiri Noy, an assistant professor of sociology at the University of Wyoming, determined that U.S. adults hold one of three perspectives based on their knowledge and attitudes about science and religion. Twenty-one percent hold a post-secular perspective, which values both science and religion, but which rejects science in favor of religion when it comes to topics such as creation and evolution. Forty-three percent hold a traditional perspective, which favors religion over science, and 36 percent hold a modern perspective, which favors science over religion. 

“These three worldviews are held across religious groups, political parties, and social classes,” according to O’Brien, who said social scientists have typically focused on studying people’s perspectives on science or views on religion separately rather than looking at them simultaneously.

“Ours is the first study of the U.S. public that examines perspectives on science and religion in tandem,” he said. “In doing so, our study uncovers a previously unidentified group of well-informed people who are appreciative of science and technology’s social uses, but who are deeply religious and who reject certain scientific theories in favor of religious ones.”

Among these post-seculars, more than 90 percent agree with contemporary scientific theories about geology, radioactivity, and planetary motion, but only 6 percent believe that the universe began with a huge explosion. Even fewer — 3 percent of post-seculars — agree that humans evolved from earlier animals.

In addition, 48 percent of post-seculars believe that the Bible is the literal word of God, compared to 31 percent of all U.S. adults, 46 percent of traditionals, and 3 percent of moderns. Post-seculars also report the greatest strength of religious affiliation as compared to traditionals and moderns.

“Our findings indicate that post-seculars are the most religious,” O’Brien said. 

In terms of the study’s implications, the research “shows that differences in people’s views of science and religion do not necessarily reflect a lack of knowledge or understanding,” said O’Brien, who emphasized that “post-seculars are scientifically literate” yet still reject scientific explanations of the origins of human life and the universe.

“This suggests that bridging gaps between different groups of people may have less to do with reducing knowledge deficits among them and more to do with increasing empathy for and awareness of different lifestyles and cultural preferences,” O’Brien said.

The National Science Foundation funded the study.

Athletics

* Evansville Basketball falls at Drake

The University of Evansville men’s basketball team fell by a final of 70-65 on Saturday at the Knapp Center.

D.J. Balentine was the top scorer for UE (16-6, 6-4 MVC), finishing with 17 points. He hit 3 3-pointers. Adam Wing notched 15. Reed Timmer was the top scorer for Drake, finishing with 18.

Defense was the story early on as Evansville was 1-for-7 to begin the game as Jaylon Moore hit a pair of free throws to open the game before Egidijus Mockevicius hit a nice hook shot. Freshman Reed Timmer hit the first two shots of the game for DU before Karl Madison gave the Bulldogs their first lead of the day at 6-4 five minutes into the contest.

Mockevicius halted the run with back-to-back buckets to tie the game up at 8-8. Gary Ricks Jr. connected on the first triple of the day for DU was his bucket gave the Bulldogs a 4-of-5 start from the floor and an 11-8 advantage. Their lead reached five points at 20-15 before the Aces were able to cut the gap to two at halftime, 29-27.

The Aces had a chance to retake the lead on a few occasions in the opening frame, but two missed front ends of a one-and-one saw the Bulldogs remain on top. Timmer registered 11 first-half points, hitting 4 out of 6 shots as Drake hit 55% (11/20) of their attempts in the opening period. Blake Simmons topped the Aces with seven tallies in the first 20 minutes.

Out of the half, Drake hit 3 of their first 4 shots to take their largest lead of the game at seven points (36-29). D.J. Balentine, who went 1-of-7 in the first half, came out firing in the second, hitting his first two shots. Adam Wing also lent a helping hand, scoring four-straight as the Aces got within one at 40-39 with 13 minutes left.

The run kept going for UE as Balentine gave the Aces their first lead since the 11:46 mark of the opening half. His layup saw UE go up 41-40 with just over 12 minutes remaining. That was part of a 14-1 stretch that saw Evansville open up its largest lead of the game at five points (49-44).

Drake responded with a 6-0 stretch as they hit 4 out of 5 attempts to go back on top 50-49 with just over five minutes left. Jacob Enevold hit back-to-back layups for the Bulldogs. They went back up by two points as Ricks hit his second trey of the game with four minutes left. That put DU up 53-51.

After Duane Gibson tied it up at 53-53, Drake posted the next seven points to go up 60-53 with 1:27 left. Evansville was unable to overcome that run as Drake held on for the victory.

UE continues to play on the road on Tuesday with a trip to Normal, Ill. to face Illinois State in a 7 p.m. matchup. Next Saturday, the Aces are back home to take on Bradley. Game time is set for 1:05 p.m. Call 812-488-ACES or visit the Carson Center or Ford Center ticket office to purchase seats for the game.

* Dickey nets game-high 24 points in UE loss at Indiana State

Guard Sara Dickey scored a game-high 24 points but the University of Evansville women’s basketball team (10-10, 5-4) fell 67-52 at the Indiana State Sycamores on Sunday afternoon.

Playing a half hour from her hometown of Montezuma, Dickey recorded her 18th career game of 20+ points. She was 8-for-16 shooting, made a pair of treys and converted on all six free throws in the game.

Down early, Evansville got a game-tying three from guard Kat Taylor to even the score at five with 18:14 on the clock.

Indiana State (14-6, 4-5) then rebuilt the lead to six points, 15-9, with a Cierra Ceazar layup at the 11:03 mark.

UE brought the gap down to two points on a pair of occasions before taking their first lead with less than a minute to play in the opening half. Dickey’s three with 21 seconds left inched the Aces ahead of Indiana State 23-22. Indiana State’s Joyea Marshall then snatched the lead back for the Sycamores with a buzzer-beating three just before halftime.

The Aces shot 40.9% in the opening stanza despite nine first-half turnovers. Forward Sasha Robinson had eight of her 10 rebounds before halftime.

Out of the break, Dickey tied the game at 25 with a lay-up only to watch as Indiana State went on a 19-8 run to build a double-digit advantage.

UE then brought the deficit to single digits, 44-37, by scoring four consecutive points on jumpers from Dickey and Robinson.

Down by seven, Evansville was held scoreless over the next 5:43 as the Sycamores went on a 13-0 run.

Indiana State outscored UE 42-29 in the second half on the way to the win.

Forward Hannah Owens tied a career-high with four rebounds, all on the offensive side.

The Aces will look to end their three-game losing streak on Friday, Feb. 6 at Loyola. The game will be held at Gentile Arena in Chicago and begin at 7:00 p.m.
