West Suburban Chicago Chapter of AUNaperville, Illinois

Special Video Presentation and Discussion:

No Dinosaurs in Heaven explores the crisis in science literacy in America.  The film weaves together two central strands: the problem of creationists who undermine the teaching of evolution in public schools and a stunning raft trip down the Grand Canyon, where the creationist and evolutionary explanations of this natural wonder are juxtaposed.  Evolution versus creationism is framed through the lens of geology, biology, and the scientific method.  The film exposes the tactics used by Christian fundamentalists to undermine the separation of church and state, argues why science education is crucial in a healthy democracy, and documents the ongoing struggle to keep pseudo-science out of the science classroom.

Written, produced, and directed by Greta Schiller
