Samuel A. Alito Jr. and Evidence Against Macroevolutionary Theory
As with Harriet Miers, whether Samuel Alito is confirmed may have more impact on the ultimate result in Kitzmiller v. Dover (and whether scientific evidence against macroevolutionary theory may be presented to students) than what goes on the courtroom this week. If preliminary indications on his views on church-state issues prove accurate, Anthony Kennedy may be the next swing vote on such issues. My previous post on this is here.
The Washington Post article on his nomination is here, his profile is here, and the transcript of the announcement is here.
