NCSE Evolution Education Update for 2010/05/14

(by NCSE Deputy Director Glenn Branch)

Dear Friends of NCSE,

A batch of videos for your enjoyment, and NCSE's Eugenie C. Scott is
to receive her eighth honorary degree.


A slew of videos featuring NCSE's executive director Eugenie C. Scott
have been recently added to NCSE's YouTube channel. There's "Not Over
After Dover," a lecture delivered at Colorado State University in
January 2010, as well as three segments from the "Listen to the
Scientists" series filmed in 2005, in which Scott discusses the nature
of science, creationism, and the importance of science education. And
there are also two blasts from the past: the presentation, by Molly
Ivins, to Scott of the Hugh Hefner First Amendment Award for 1999, and
"Science Showdown!" -- a mock creationism/evolution debate staged at
the 1989 meeting of the American Association of Physical
Anthropologists, starring Linda Wolfe as Charlene Darwin, William
Thwaites as Dr. P. D. Q. Piltdown, William Pollitzer as the Reverend
Billy Joe Pollitzer, Leslie Sue Lieberman as Vanna Sue, and Scott as
the moderator, Oprah Donahue. Tune in and enjoy!
