Talk Origins Phone App

It's pretty hard to find someone without a smart phone these days and those who do not have smart phones are quickly trading in their old flip phones for smart phones.  Regardless of what you think of the disadvantages of smart phones, it's absolutely clear that smart phones have many advantages.  One of those is the quick availability of science information through various science themed apps.  One of these apps, Talk Origins, focuses on evolution.

The Talk Origins phone app contains a very helpful database of responses to those attempting to debunk evolution.  Evolution is a complicated science topic and there are many, many misconceptions with new ones popping up all the time, typically pushed by young earth creationists who think the Earth was created a mere 6,000 years ago.  Unless you have an immense knowledge regarding evolution, it can often be difficult to debunk these misconceptions.  The Talk Origins phone app fixes that.  The app divides these misconceptions into categories and sub-categories to help you easily find what you are looking for.  

I highly encourage you (and your kids) to search your phones app store for Talk Origins.  It's a free app filled with awesome science!
