Kitzmiller v. Dover: Miller Direct

The latest update by Jonathan Witt on Kenneth Miller's testimony is here. His follow up commentary is here.

The latest article from the Washington Post is here.

It is unclear from the reports whether Miller has been cross-examined yet. That will be the interesting part, since the Darwin Only scientists refused to testify in Kansas, and thereby conveniently avoided being cross-examined. I would sure love to ask him a few questions.

Post Note: Apparently the cross examination had just begun yesterday, and will continue today. See Miller's inconsistencies noted in Jonathan Witt's second post above. The defense will have all night to go over it and prepare more cross.

You are ridiculous.
A waste of my time.

I wholeheartedly agree with you. All viewpoints should be represented. Please see my similar demands the Flying Spaghetti Monsterist theory also be included.

Scientists refused to testify in Kansas only because it was an unfair fight -- there were no evidence rules, and there were no standards for witnesses. Anyone could testify who wanted to, and there was zero screening to see whether the witnesses were qualified to state an opinion on the matter.

Under the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, few if any of the Kansas witnesses could qualify to testify in federal court in the Dover trial. That's why the information between the two events will look different.

When objective standards of truth are employed in a fair fight, science tends to win these tussles
