Religious Audiences and the Topic of Evolution: Lessons from the Classroom (video) "Religious Audiences and the Topic of Evolution: Lessons from the Classroom" A panel discussion by the Human Origins Broader Social Impacts Committee members with guest speaker Dr. Jamie Jensen Presented on April 30, 2017, National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution Introduction by Connie Bertka Presentation by guest speaker Jamie Jensen Response to presentation: Lee Meadows Response to presentation: Betty W. Holley Response to presentation: Wes McCoy Response to presentation: Briana Pobiner What relationship did you find in your research between students’ understanding evolution and acceptance of evolution? In the Jewish population, younger respondents to the survey showed less acceptance than older respondents, but would you clarify the overall participants in the survey? What do your students think about intelligent design as you address the topic of evolution in your classes? What do you say to parents who, because of their religious beliefs, won’t cooperate with their kids learning about evolution? What advice do you have for scientists who may be uncertain or even hostile when they engage religious audiences on the topic of evolution? Coming from a community where evolution was dismissed, I tried to lead discussions about evolution in high school and Sunday school. What are your experiences in discussing evolution with religious people in your families and communities? In your research I was confused by the survey’s definition of intelligent design. How are you defining intelligent design?
