Description

Eugenie Scott is an American physical anthropologist and a former university professor who served as the executive director of the National Center for Science Education from 1987 to 2014. She’s one of the strongest voices that challenge the teaching of young earth creationism and intelligent design in schools. In this clip she talks about how important it is to get through ideological filters so that you can explain the science.
