Darwin Day 2022
Dr. Eugenie C Scott will discuss Darwin, Evolution, Myth and Humanism on 2/12/2022 at 3pm EST.
Dr. Scott is an American physical anthropologist, a former university professor and educator who has been active in opposing the teaching of young Earth creationism and intelligent design in schools. She coined the term "Gish gallop" to describe a fallacious rhetorical technique which consists in overwhelming an interlocutor with as many individually-weak arguments as possible, in order to prevent rebuttal of the whole argument.
From 1986 to 2014, Scott served as the Executive Director of the National Center for Science Education, a nonprofit science education organization supporting teaching of evolutionary science. Since 2013, Scott has been listed on their Advisory Council.
Scott holds a Ph.D. in biological anthropology from the University of Missouri. A biologist, her research has been in human medical anthropology and skeletal biology.
Scott serves on the Board of Trustees of Americans United for Separation of Church and State. Scott is a member of the Board of Advisers for the publication, Scientific American. She is also a Fellow of the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry (CSI) and GWUP.
Scott and her husband, lawyer Thomas C. Sager, have one daughter and reside in Berkeley, California.
