← Rare Look Inside Bible Belt Classroom

If anybody wants to click back to the 1st page where I posted the link to the full show, Richard Dawkins is in it and represents a level headed view on the subject well.

There is another atheist who is featured in the program who is shown talking to children in a classroom and he in my opinion was NOT helping with the situation. He kept telling the kids about the "horrible" repercussions of accepting evolution, no afterlife, no way to derive morals from an evolutionary standpoint, etc. (shocker, morals are socially driven not biologically).

Eugenie Scott is also in it, and she's just great. :)

Anyhow, it's a pretty interesting and sadly still quite relevant show. If you are interested in knowing a little bit more about evolution vs religion in the classroom, i recommend it.
