A while back, I wrote about the way that the geology of the Grand Canyon has been misrepresented by ‘Young Earth’ creationists. Now here’s a good discussion of this from geologist Steve Newton:
You may also remember the comments about evolution that were made by some of last year’s Miss USA contestants. A 2012 Darwin Day talk by Josh Rosenau looks at how closely the contestants’ views match those of Americans in general. His context is the continuing efforts to see various ‘flavours’ of creationism taught in science classrooms.
Both are interesting viewing & could form the basis of some good classroom discussion 🙂
