Evolution Ed Defenders Make Rapids Progress in Grand Canyon

So what is does rafting down the Grand Canyon have to do with science education?

Ann Reid, the former researcher research biologist and current executive director of the National Center for Science Education. She spoke to me July 7th at the Fern Glen Canyon campsite . the morning of our penultimate date day rafting down the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon.

Well, the for NCSE is it’s one of the most powerful places on the Earth to show the difference differences between religious thinking and scientific thinking. Because for a very small minority of Christians who believe the Earth have been is 6,000 years old, the Grand Canyon is the best evidence , they have of Noah’s flood.

Creation is to Creationists run multiple raft trips down the Colorado each year. A Web site touting sums, some says the trips will encourage your faith as we reveal the truth of God’s creation found in this gigantic reminint remnant of the Biblical Flood. Which creation is believed creationists believe occurred some 4,400 years ago.

And of course , scientists of many, many different subdisciplines have figured out that the canyon is much older than that. There is, there’s the rocksthere is , there’s the biologythere is , there’s the hydrology. , it’s just a fantastic place to learn how science explains scientists explain the world around us.

The annual NCSE Colorado River trip holds about two dozen guests and features talks by a geologist and an evolutionary biologist. This year, two public school teachers received all-expense paid scholarship trips . so they could bring their experience experiences and learning , back to the classroom. And I record recorded lots more audio, which will I’ll be posted in posting as Scientific American Science Talk podcasts in the coming weeks.
