I came across an interesting set of lectures called the 'Darwin Was Wrong' Conference.

Quotes and comments;

A. Summary of conference;
'2009 is the year of Darwin, marking the 200th anniversary of Darwin's birth and the 150th anniversary of his book, Origin of Species. While much of the world is now paying homage to this man, it is timely to review how profoundly wrong Darwin was on virtually every major topic he addressed. While Darwin was right about the ability of populations to adapt in a limited way to changed environmental conditions, he was profoundly wrong on key scientific issues including: the very nature of science itself; the geological time scale; the incompleteness of the fossil record; the complexity of life; the limits of natural selection; the tree of life; race; and the origin of human beings. More importantly, Darwin was wrong about the disastrous social and moral consequences of his ideas. Lastly, but most importantly, Darwin was wrong about God.

- I've only listened to a couple lectures so far; but I'd recommend the one by Dr. E. Thomas McMullen. ('Darwin was wrong about science)' He teaches or taught the philosophy of science, and gives an introduction to the subject here.
