Science and Medicine in a Crisis of Integrity
Are the medications you are taking beneficial or harmful to your health? Can you trust the expertise of your physician? What about your pharmacist? Where can one go to obtain accurate information about this important subject? The fact is that Americans are losing their trust in science and medicine—with reason. Science has been corrupted for political, financial and ideological reasons, and the result is devastating. In this serious talk, Dr. Crocker presents frightening statistics on common medications and shows how lack of integrity in science jeopardizes our health as a nation. The facts are grim, but she does not leave the audience in despair, going on to outline the work of American Institute for Technology and Science Education in bringing positive change to science by increasing awareness of the need for integrity—so we will once again be able to trust the “experts”.
Cheating and Censorship in Science—Where is the Integrity in Academia?
First presented at a legislative briefing in Washington DC, this lecture gives unequivocal evidence that, starting with elementary school and following all the way through postgraduate education, academia is being corrupted by a crisis of integrity. Student cheating, from full-blown plagiarism to sharing homework answers to passing out stolen exams, is tolerated all the way through school and even beyond. The restriction of educators to only teaching politically correct, financially beneficial, or ideologically attractive “facts” exacerbates this problem. After all, “You can’t get a good education if they’re only telling you half the story (D. Horowitz).” In this enlightening talk, Dr. Crocker asserts that the solution to this problem is surprisingly simple. Cheating is decreased when students are encouraged to learn, understand and evaluate what they are taught. We need to allow students to learn, educators to teach, and the public to be free to think!
Free to Think–or Not?
This informative talk is suited for all audiences; no science background is necessary. Beginning with an exploration of the nature of freedom, Dr. Crocker shows that science in America is no longer free: it has been taken hostage by politics, finance and religion. After giving much evidence of how those who question the scientific “consensus” view are persecuted, Dr. Crocker then explores the consequences of this stranglehold on science for our health, economic success, and religious views as a society. She ends with a plea for a return to scientific integrity, leaving the audience with hope for the future as she gives information on how they can help make this happen: a call to action for the good of our nation.
Removing the Nonsense from Education: How lack of Integrity in Science Affects Students
Going to college? Or even public high school? Have you had your shots? Right now academia is suffering from a deadly infection: secular humanism (atheism) disguised as science. Educators often try to indoctrinate students into politically correct views, including the idea that all “educated and intelligent” people accept the “fact” of evolution, with all its naturalistic implications. Dr. Caroline Crocker is a biologist who can tell you differently. She agrees with David Horowitz, “You can’t get a good education if they’re only telling you half the story.” Dr. Crocker is on a mission to help you be free to think! This is an ideal talk for high school and college students—the young people are invited to listen, ask questions, and be vaccinated against the nonsense.
Evolution and Intelligent Design: What’s the Fuss?
Have you ever wondered why people get so angry about evolution, creation, intelligent design, etc.? In this fascinating presentation, the reason for the antagonism is explored and questions are asked: Is evolution fact, fiction or religion? What is neoDarwinism? What is intelligent design? Is it fact, fiction, or religion? What is science anyway? What about religion? Dr. Crocker carefully disentangles the religion from the science and invites the audience to think through these matters for themselves. Although this talk does include some science, participant surveys indicate that it is highly accessible and suitable for high school, university, and church audiences.
What You Shouldn’t Ever Say–If You Want a Job!
This highly technical, but fascinating, talk is most suitable for home school conventions, university audiences, and those who enjoy an intellectual challenge. If you wondered what Dr. Crocker taught causing her to lose her job at GMU, this is the presentation you want! The theory of evolution, the evidence and problems with the evidence for it, the theory of intelligent design, the evidence and problems with the evidence for it, questions about the origin of life, the wonder of DNA and the nanotechnology of cells are all discussed. An information-packed lecture that will leave you wanting more.
The Evolution and Extinction of a Teacher
Illustrated with highly-entertaining cartoons by talented teen Ayden Lopez, this presentation has a serious side. Dr. Crocker begins by describing her journey to becoming a teacher recognized for teaching excellence using amusing anecdotes from Free to Think. However, the talk then takes a sober turn when she explains how giving one lecture that impartially provided both evidence for evolution and some of the problems with that evidence resulted in the loss of her job, her legal representation, and her career. Since hers is not an isolated case and lack of scientific integrity affects all our lives, this talk is a must for teachers, church audiences, and indeed anyone who is interested in academic freedom.
