No Dinosaurs in Heaven Deal
Special offer for Secular Student Alliance members and partners!
From now, through June 30, 2015, you can get an exclusive 25% discount on the purchase of an educationally licensed DVD or digital stream of No Dinosaurs in Heaven—a documentary about the importance of teaching evolution, not creationism, in our schools.
Produced and directed by Emmy award winning filmmaker and science educator, Greta Schiller, the documentary weaves together two strands: an examination of the problem posed by creationists who earn scientific education degrees, only to advocate anti-scientific beliefs; and a visually stunning raft trip down the Grand Canyon, led by the National Center for Science Education Director Dr. Eugenie Scott, that debunks creationist explanations for its formation.
"Great movie and discussion after led by members of our biology department!"
- Brent Jensen, Faculty Advisor, Secular Student Alliance at College of Southern Idaho
