We Are SVP - the Movie

| 1 Comment | 1 TrackBack

The Society of Vertebrate Paleontology has come up with a very well-produced video introduction to the Society.

The Society’s website says

WE ARE SVP is a 33-minute video that tells the inside story of the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology – who we are, what we do, and why our work is important for science and society. The video is introduced and narrated by Sam Waterston, the long-time star of “LAW & ORDER.”

While the whole video is worthwhile, some of you may want to go straight to Chapter 4, “Evolution Vs. Creationism.” It’s got Kevin Padian and more., Go ahead - you know you want to.

Cheers, Dave

In the SVP video, I thought that Robert Bakker made a good point about old time preachers doing paleontology, and the young guy, Lyson, getting his creationist relatives to back off by showing them evidence. I guess that is the challenge, how to present the evidence, how to get it out there. Museums and videos are a good start.
