It’s pathetic that after decades of solid research, scientists still have to defend the existence of evolution and climate change. While we sit around debating established findings, super bugs and storms are preparing to topple humanity. The one upshot of these hot-button issues is they make for stellar fireworks when brought to bear in discussion—and Chapman University is fixing to host an open-panel discussion on both topics. Leading voices in the debate will form a panel—including Dr. Brian Alters, President of the National Center for Science Education (NCSE), and Eugenie C. Scott, author of the book Evolution vs. Creationism. Check it out, and pray that events like this will one day help humanity evolve beyond the poison climate of the culture wars.
