PBS Debate between Pigliucci and Wells Now Online

The PBS debate between biologists Massimo Pigliucci and Jonathan Wells is now available online in both streaming video and as a transcript on the website for "Uncommon Knowledge." During the exchange, Jonathan Wells effectively articulates what is at stake in the growing public debate over science education:

I absolutely think science students should be taught Darwin's theory of evolution and the modern version of it because it's so important and so influential in modern biology. But I also think they should be taught scientific evidence and arguments against it as well as for it. And if you question whether there's a controversy, you have here two biologists and you've heard the controversy, at least a little snippet of it. So there is a controversy here and I think students should be aware of that.
