"No Dinosaurs in Heaven" is a film that examines the hijacking of science education by religious fundamentalists, threatening the separation of church and state and dangerously undermining scientific literacy. Healdsburg High School logoThe 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 with Eugenie Scott, Steve Newton, and Alan Gishlick of NCSE, that debunks creationist explanations for the canyon's formation. These two strands expose the fallacies in the "debate," manufactured by anti-science forces, that creationism is a valid scientific alternative to evolution.

After the film, there will be a question and answer period, moderated by Mr. Newton.

Presentation facilitated by the Healdsburg High School Science Alliance with Rob Lee, Department Chair.
