Creationism, Evolution, and Our Communication Gap

A session at SkeptiCamp Chicago 2013

Saturday 2nd March, 2013

12:20pm to 12:40pm (CST)

We skeptics have a pretty serious communication gap with creationists and other pseudoscientists in that we naïvely expect them to think like skeptics. When attempting to engage in discussion with creationists, we are speaking different languages: we come to the issue from a naturalistic, science-based framework, and they approach it from what they consider a Biblically-oriented worldview Is it just plain hopeless? Mr. Lowry will explore some ideas on how to move forward based upon experiences with creationists.
