What if . . . teachers used science fiction to describe the universe.
Just when I thought I had found the last web page of the Internet, I discovered an interesting and informative site. It offers resources for teachers to encourage their students to explore science using sci-fi books and movies.
My suggestion is to not waste time with people who bury their heads in the sand for profit or sheer stubbornness; use entertainment to encourage the curious to explore science and become better educated. The debate with "science" deniers is over.
There are many good sites that offers information about using speculative fiction to teach science. Start with: http://www.scoop.it/t/using-science-fiction-to-teach-science
Also have a little fun with The Physics of Star Trek written by Lawrence M. Krauss. Re-discover the fantastic sci-fi devices that we now use daily.
