Lawrence Krauss: Teaching Creationism Like Taliban, Child Abuse

On the most recent episode of his web show, David Pakman spoke with Lawrence Krauss about evolution, the teaching of creationism to children, and the impact is has on those children in an increasingly competitive national and global economy. In the interview, Krauss argues that teaching creationism as fact rather than religious ideology is a form of child abuse since it omits vital scientific facts and puts children at an educational disadvantage compared to their peers. 

It should be noted that Krauss has some impressive credentials. He's authored nine books relating to different areas of science, has a Physics Ph.D from M.I.T., has various associations with both Harvard and Yale, has written over 300 scientific papers, and more.
