I was asked to join HuffPost Live Host/Producer Josh Zepps for a conversation about critical thinking. How can we teach this precious skill to students? What role does science play in the process? And what about those who seek to teach creationism and other religious propaganda in public schools? Are they not creating a false debate and setting up American youth for failure?

The conversation sparked from a blog written by Michael Zimmerman called "Why Battling Creationism Matters: Learning To Question." Michael, Kenneth Miller, Hillary DeCesare, and I joined Josh via Google Hangout to weigh in.
