Four Opinions on the Hearing in the Sunday KC Star Posted on Sun, May. 08, 2005
An ABC producer confirmed with me yesterday afternoon that I’m supposed to appear on Nightline this Monday (5.9.05). Steve Meyer is scheduled to debate Ken Miller on CNBC Sunday (5.8.05).
I’m waiting for the day when the hearings are not voluntary but involve subpoenas in which evolutionists are deposed at length on their views. On that happy day, I can assure you that they won’t come off looking well.

Thursday through Saturday next week, May 5-7, the Committee will hear testimony from scientists, philosophers and educators who think the standards should Read More…
…the very foundation of science in the United States is at risk…
Their simple, idiotic credulity as a populace would have been the envy of Lenin. That is the tragic paradox. The Land of the Free, telly and burgerfed, has become the Land of the Credulous Moron.
One of my favorite over-the-top quotes about the power of natural selection comes from novelist Barbara Kingsolver.
