Explore Alliance Presents: How Do You KNOW? – Episode #30: 'There is NO Debate in Science'
In this episode, Dr. Barth discusses the the difference between persuading someone to accept your opinion in an argument and arguing from evidence (debating): and demonstrating that data collected in nature supports or aligns with the expected outcome from a particular theory (the formal method of science), are fundamentally at odds with each other.
The activities and materials provided free for the How Do You Know? program are based upon Dr. Barth’s award-winning book: Astronomy For Educators. This book is used as a resource in more than 5,700 schools across the United States and in more than 50 countries world wide. The book is published as an Open Educational Resource Text by the University of Arkansas Library Press.
