I really like tyson, he is a great speaker and an objective thinker. Also, he has the spark of inspiration that I find lacking in many of the public
speakers in the sciences. He kind of reminds me of Richard Feynman though not as animated.
I am a little puzzled at why it would be necessary to challenge creationism, I hear this thrown around all the time. I suppose if you go to Liberty
University you might find a professor who advocates being open to it but, even there, you are highly unlikely to find true believers, they are a very
informed student body. Religion doesn't kill brain cells.
I guess it is just in support of common core, after all why force a uniform curriculum if there isn't an intellectual boogeyman to counter. I suppose
it is similar to the police state's justifications.
The simple solution is to abolish public school, then no one will be forced to endure a state sponsored curriculum whatever it might be. Plus, we will
begin to see a dramatic improvement in overall education standards.
