The kid is going places

It’s Zack Kopplin! Getting interviewed by Bill Moyers!

Let’s hope even more teenagers rise up to express themselves.

    That kid is poised, informed and can make a point. Maybe the future isn’t so dull.

    I watched that episode tis past weekend. The Kopplin interview was good and having Susan Jacoby following up was awesome.

    PZ, you inveterate sexist, why should this be a male-only affair :) ?

    Apologies – a dirty mind is a terrible thing to waste.

    The whole show was good.

    I didn’t like Kopplin’s response when Moyers suggested that theistic evolution sounds like a form of creationism. Moyers’ sense was correct – teleology is not a negligible addition to evolution.

    I think I’ll send this clip to my niece. She is still in elementary school, but is already fighting stupidity that all too often comes from her teachers.

    Zack Kopplin, at the end of the interview: “I don’t think it’s a choice. I think it’s something that has to be done, and I’m the one who’s in the right position to do it, so I’m gonna do it.”

    –>Well said! This kid rolled an 18 in WIS.

    The older I get, the more I discover people I admire who are not just younger than me, but A LOT younger than me. (Yes, there’s a logic there.) On the one hand it’s a little disconcerting and a trifle embarrassing; on the other hand, it makes me feel so much better about the world and its prospects for the future.
