Geologist Dan Phelps discusses creationism in the state of Kentucky.

Creationism remains a popular pseudoscience in the U.S. Geologist Dan Phelps has been debating creationists in Kentucky for several years. Kentucky is the home base of "Answers in Genesis" and its Creation Museum and Ark replica. Phelps will focus on the fact that creationist initiatives are often sponsored by the government, and how to deal with that.
