Personal Quote:

[on how he makes the average person understand science] You have to have learning objectives - things you want to get across. You want to make a point: Humans and dinosaurs did not live concurrently. If you get the adjacent carbon dating of volcanic soil, hat's cool. But what I want you to get is that ancient dinosaurs and humans did not live at the same time. The rest is gravy. See more »
