Geological Society of America honors Judge Jones for upholding science in the classroom
Date:9/29/2009

ake place at the Oregon Convention Center, and members of the media are invited.

Studies show that a majority of Americans accept or deny evidence of evolution, geologic processes and the age of the Earth to the extent that they can be reconciled with their religious or other core beliefs. Therefore, accuracy, clarity and engaging modes of presenting scientific knowledge are essential to enhancing public understanding of science and enabling more people to accommodate concepts they find challenging, without compromising the integrity of the science itself.

Jones will explore these issues along with:

  • Jeremy Jackson, Director, Center for Marine Biodiversity & Conservation, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, and leading authority on human impacts on the oceans

  • Randy Olson, Marine biologist and independent film-maker known for his documentary Flock of Dodos: the Evolution-Intelligent Design Circus, and author of the forthcoming book Don't Be Such a Scientist: Talking Substance in an Age of Style

  • Kevin Padian, Professor of Integrative Biology and Curator, Museum of Paleontology, University of California, Berkeley, and President of the National Center for Science Education

  • Ray Troll, Artist whose quirky, energetic and humorous posters and books include Planet Ocean, Cruisin the Fossil Freeway, and Raptors Fossils, Fins & Fangs, which incorporate sound science and focus on evolutionary themes
