Screening of "No Dinosaurs in Heaven"
Eugenie Scott and Greta Schiller
October 24, 2011
Rosenthal Library Auditorium
Flushing, New York
Dr. Eugenie Scott and Emmy Award-winning director Greta Schiller will host a question and answer session following the film.
"No Dinosaurs in Heaven" is a film essay that examines the hijacking of science education by religious fundamentalists, threatening the separation of church and state and dangerously undermining scientific literacy. The documentary weaves together two strands: an examination of the problem posed by creationists who earn science education degrees only to advocate anti-scientific beliefs in the classroom; and a visually stunning raft trip down the Grand Canyon, led by Dr. Eugenie Scott, that debunks creationist explanations for its formation. These two strands expose the fallacies in the "debate," manufactured by anti-science forces, that creationism is a valid scientific alternative to evolution.
