In “Peer-Reviewed Paper in Medical Journal Challenges Evolutionary Science and Inaccurate Evolution-Education” (Evolution News & Views, January 17, 2012), Casey Luskin reports
A new article by Dr. Joseph Kuhn of the Department of Surgery at Baylor University Medical Center [Texas], appearing in the peer-reviewed journal Baylor University Medical Center Proceedings, poses a number of challenges to both chemical and biological evolution. Titled “Dissecting Darwinism,” the paper begins by recounting some of the arguments raised during the Texas State Board of Education debate that challenged chemical and biological evolution.
Despite Texas’s call for discussing the scientific strengths and weaknesses of Darwinian evolution, Kuhn closes by noting, “In 2011, when new textbooks were presented to the State Board of Education, 9 out of 10 failed to provide the mandated supplementary curricula, which would include both positive and negative aspects of evolution (44).
Some blame Texas Governor Rick Perry for putting a ‘crat in charge – which is what you do if you don’t want to get anything done.
