Before I became active on YouTube I wasn’t aware of the NCSE, but I’ve become a big supporter of this organisation in the past few years, as they provide a very valuable service:
NCSE is a not-for-profit membership organization that defends the teaching of evolution and climate change in the public schools. NCSE provides information, resources, and advice to schools, teachers, parents, and concerned citizens defending science education.
And one of their activities are presentations about these issues. Of which the following video is a good example. It is a long video but well worth the time as it provides some insight in the language used and positions held by creationists. Especially in the context of laws they are attempting to pass to enable the teaching of it in schools:
Policy director Steve Newton dissects the recently passed Tennessee “monkey bill”, its cohorts, and the chilling effects on American science education. When: 4/15/2012. Where: Berkeley Public Library
