An interesting film on not only the history but a little background on the entire controversy will premiere on Showtime on Thursday at 7:30 PM local (8:30 PM Eastern). While I don’t agree entirely with all of the statements that the filmmaker, Evolutionary biology Harvard PhD. Randy Olson, makes (more on that in the future recap of the Flock of Dodos screening at WSU), I think he’s made what may amount to an important film that will function as a catalyst not only for public understanding of science and scientists, but also humanizing pseudo-scientists and anti-science activists. Not only do I highly recommend this film, but I beg you to recommend it to others as well.
