The National Center for Science Education (NCSE), in Oakland, California, works to defend the integrity of science education. Peter Hess will talk about his own commitment to this cause and relate some of his experiences. He believes that at the heart of many attacks on science lies a questionable metaphysic of “human exceptionalism”—the common but unacknowledged assumption that Homo sapiens is exempt from biological constraints.

Talk is a presentation in the
Speaker Series
"Christians talking about their work and their passion"
