Neil deGrasse TysonPeople cited violation of the First Amendment when a New Jersey school teacher asserted that evolution and the big bang are not scientific and that Noah’s ark carried dinosaurs.

The head fake — again, we’re back to the head fakes. The best way to teach somebody something is to have them think they’re learning something else. I’ve done it my whole career. And the head fake here is that they’re learning to program but they just think they’re making movies and video games.
