"Kansas vs. Darwin" by Jeff Tamblyn. Introduced by Ryan Huish, assistant professor of biology. In May of 2005, a three-member subcommittee of the Kansas State Board of Education held hearings to determine whether Darwin's long-held Theory of Evolution should be challenged in public-school science curriculum. At stake was, in effect, the definition of science for Kansas schoolchildren. "Kansas vs. Darwin" reveals the fascinating and sometimes baffling personalities behind the spectacle, with exclusive footage of the hearings and revealing, in-depth interviews with the major figures on both sides. Never revealing their own opinions, the filmmakers allow the characters to fight it out, with emotionally polarizing and often humorous results. The witnesses at the hearings include anti-evolution scientists, educators, and even a middle-eastern journalist. Their opinions are refuted in interviews with their pro-evolution counterparts. More than a political documentary, "Kansas vs. Darwin" takes you to the dark heart of the culture wars, examining the confusing crossroads of politics, religion, science, and education. Reception to follow.
