Current Rice U student Zack Kopplin is the front man for getting the “outrage” of Darwin doubt done away with. We tracked him here and here.
This in an age of information theory, the Cambrian explosion, and admitted large-scale stasis in evolution …?
Apparently, the Louisiana Science Education Act of 2008 (which protects teachers from Darwinists, who want you to know that Haeckel’s embryos are real and design in the universe isn’t) stands.
So Slate is in a dither, which means we all have to care. Send sobs, flowers, chocolates, and heart-shaped tissue paper via the Internet immediately.
But none of this addresses the big question: Young Zack has a choice before him. He can continue to be a progressive celeb (cough!) or consider the reasons for doubting Darwin. Way harder life, but much better facts.
Question: Why would a clever young person want to spend his life fronting Darwin when nature has never co-operated? Isn’t there a better life out there?
