Oakmont Sunday Symposium

Steven Newton, a programs and policy director at the National Center for Science Education, explores the evolution of American creationism and how anti-evolution activities have changed from the Scopes era to the present. Newton will explain creationism's many faces, from dinosaurs-lived-with-humans young earthers to 'intelligent design' advocates to legislators promoting 'academic freedom' legislation. Newton's talk will examine why teaching evolution--and science in general--is so important, and suggest ways for the pro-science community to counter creationist assaults on science education.
