DISTINGUISHED SCIENCE LECTURE SERIES
Evolution Revolution: Festschrift 2000 for Stephen Jay Gould, Part III
This is one of the best lectures in the history of the Skeptics Society’s Distinguished Science Lecture Series! Dr. Stephen Jay Gould is one of the most well-known and highly decorated scientists of our age. With wit, charm, and historical anecdote, Gould’s remarkable lecture traces the history of western culture’s uneasy relationship with the pedestal-shattering discoveries of science.
This lecture was recorded on October 7, 2000 as part of the Distinguished Science Lecture Series hosted by Michael Shermer and presented by The Skeptics Society in California (1992–2015).
We offer this lecture to you freely, and greatly appreciate your support.
SKEPTIC RESEARCH CENTER REPORT (CUPES-003)
Inequality & the Economy: Pandemic Tradeoffs
This is the third report from the Civil Unrest and Presidential Election Study (CUPES). Here, we examine how peoples’ attitudes reflect difficult recent tradeoffs associated with racism, the economy, and the COVID-19 pandemic. People are concerned about unemployment, COVID-19, and racism, but how do they weigh each concern relative to one another? For example, the more people go out to protest, the more they may contribute to the spread of COVID-19. Or, the more businesses are closed to reduce the spread of COVID-19, the greater the risk of joblessness.
