The BioCosmos team during a courtesy call with the DVC ASA, Prof. Hussein Golicha.

This intellectual engagement was organized by the Department of Languages and Literature Education (LLE), the Directorate of Research and Postgraduate Support in conjunction with BioCosmos Kenya and BioCosmos Africa. The main mandate of BioCosmos Africa & BioCosmos Kenya is to advance the understanding that human beings and nature are the result of intelligent design rather than undirected processes.  Intelligent Design (ID) theory postulates that many features of nature are best explained by Intelligent cause because in our experience, intelligence is the cause of their informational properties.

Stimulating presentations were made on various topics, including, ‘The ID Curriculum Development and Implementation’, ‘The Introduction to World Views’, ‘Mystery of Metamorphosis’, ‘How Large Is the Genetic Universe’ and ‘Explanatory Promise of Design Triangulation’. The thought provoking presentations were geared to the lecture theme 'The Evolution Theory & the Question of Intelligent Design: We follow the evidence where it leads.’

The rationale of the cause is to advance the understanding that human beings and nature are the result of intelligent design rather than undirected processes. It seeks to find a long-term scientific and cultural change through cutting-edge scientific research and education that aims at empowering students.

The event was graced by the Deputy Vice Chancellor, Planning Research and Innovation, Prof. Charles Mutai who represented the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Solomon Shibairo. He pointed out that the sensitization on the theory of evolution and the notion of Intelligent Design has come at a time when different schools exist in the world as well as in the academic and spiritual circles.

“As an institution, we are happy to receive BioCosmos Team and happy about the relationship that we have established with the team. This fellowship between MMUST and BioCosmos will avail further research opportunities to benefit our scholars in the University,” said Prof. Mutai.

The Deputy Vice Chancellor, Academics and Student Affairs, Prof. Hussein Golicha who was also present, welcomed the BioCosmos team and the International speakers to MMUST. Speaking during the official opening of the event, Prof. Golicha noted that the public lecture has provided a networking opportunity for scholars as well as a learning session for our students to get a better understanding of the theories.

Notably, the Director, Research and Postgraduate Support, Prof. Peter Bukhala applauded the BioCosmos team and all the researchers for finding it important to help bridge the gap between evolution and creation theories through research. His sentiments were echoed by the Dean School of Arts and Social Sciences, Dr. Rose Auma who expressed delight with the collaboration.

The climax of the public lecture was marked by the launching of BioCosmos Students’ Association whose patron is Dr. Lencer Ndede and the Chairperson, Mr. Ganingham Makoli, a student of Languages and Literature Education. Dr. Ndede is also the BioCosmos MMUST Representative. She stated that through the launch of the association, they will be able to conduct various BioCosmos activities for the students. Further, she noted that she would ensure a wider audience of Intelligent Design by holding a conference to engage diverse scholars on the same.

The other notable members of the University present were the Director, International and Academic Linkages, Dr. Catherine Aurah, Director, Corporate Communications and Marketing, Dr. Lydia Anyonje, Deputy Director, Institute of Indigenous Knowledge and Cultural Studies, Dr. Lucy Mandillah, Dr. David Barasa (Coordinator, BioCosmos Public Lecture), Dr. Jairus Omuteche (Chairperson LLE), Dr. Joyce Kasili (LLE Lecturer), Dr. Benard Mudogo (LLE Lecturer), Dr. Chris Wasike (LLE Lecturer and Dr. Fridah Miruka (LLE Lecturer), Dr. Angela Savala (Treasurer UASU) and Dr. Rose Opiyo (Lecturer, Educational Psychology).

In knowledge, when there is a gap, we need to find a solution to bridge it. The Intelligent Design Theory will certainly provide the necessary skills to help fill the gap.
