A Pledge to Science? That’s Something Congress Should Consider

posted on December 12, 2012

Adam Frank of NPR advocates a national Pledge for Science, which would ensure political support for scientific education and research. However, he does not want the pledge to become a battle between atheism and creationism and believes that a commitment to science does not belittle a commitment to religion.
