lol Not really.
As an institution of learning in the state of Oklahoma, it is my hope that OU would present to the public the full range of opinion that is present within science over Darwin’s theories. In addition to the action of natural selection, many other theories as to the origin of the species have been considered and discussed, including, but not limited to, evolution by symbiogenesis (Lynn Margulis), biological self-organization (Stuart Kauffman), evolution through natural genetic engineering (James Shapiro), evolution by intelligent design (Michael Behe), and creationism (Leonard Brand [who?]). Aspects of all of these theories are within the bounds of current scientific discussions, and I listed the names of prominent proponents along with the theories. Links by ERV, names original
I bet Boren will take johnny seriously, though. Johnny used to live in Oklahoma.
Johnny even has the support of UD commenter, riddick, who is a professor at OU!!
The Zoology Department at OU is about the most Stalinist institution in academia one can imagine. Check out their statement here:
After reading that, you’ll understand why the presenters at this year’s Darwinfest are basically on one side of the argument. As a professor at OU, I am familiar with the formation and acceptance of the statement, as one of my colleagues was the sole dissenter on the committee which reviewed it.
If anyone knows about Stalin and evolutionary biology, its Dr. Frank Riddick– Visiting Assistant Professor of Music Theory at the University of Oklahoma.
ROFL!!! God bless IDiots!
Fantastic. Why not invite the music guy, too? Have a whole troupe of non-scientists to ‘debate’ science. Yay. Ugh. Ruse and Billy are buttbuddies and ‘debate’ each other all the friggen time (2005 Dembski=hard lulz).
*raises hand* Ill ‘debate’ Billy, Trinity Spawn. Not that I expect anyone to ask, after Behes response to a request to ‘debate’ me. Hell, why dont you just find some random OU biology undergrad to ‘debate’ him? Oh, no I suppose youre too scared of that potential outcome too.
No, best to invite the twat.
