Standing Up To the Darwinian Thought Police
Another note on the subject of my last two posts, based on this report by the Washington Post. I believe that the American people will admire the bravery of the Kansas school board in standing up to such heavy handed tactics. These kinds of cynical reprisals must also make people wonder: how many other scientists doubt macroevolutionary theory, but are too nervous to speak out? The Darwin Only lobby is creating a climate of pressure and intimidation.

Another thought: the Post article states that the National Academy of Sciences was chartered by Congress to advise it on science matters. This makes me wonder- do they have the authority to discriminate against a specific state in this manner? Do they really own and control all these copyrights? Is there any Congressional oversight?
