Randy Olson’s documentary is funny, humane, and completely spot-on when it comes to the blind spots of scientists, the would-be defenders of evolution who often don’t have a clue about how to connect with the rest of America. Olson inspires all of us to ask questions like these: How could the smartest people on earth actually be so bad at political communication and strategy? And when are scientists going to wake up and realize that part of the blame for the spread of anti-evolutionism in the US falls on their doorstep?
So I give my wholehearted endorsement to Flock of Dodos, and hope you all will check it out….
