Science Saturday

I am preparing to record an interview with Dr. Alan Glasser on science, among other things, and I came across this short clip of Ken Miller on the human genetics and our primate ancestors. Although the uploader of this video chose, I think, a title too provocative, the subject matter is facing. Take a look:

The intriguing bit, which he waits until the end of the topic to reveal, is that Miller admits to being a theist, but not a creationist. I am fascinated by the growing distrust of science and terrified that one of the outcomes of this distrust may that an entire generation of Americans loses their incentive to help expand the frontiers of knowledge. More on this later...
