People dont understand why I love Oklahoma so much.
Evidently Todd Thomsen, some Oklahoma legislator dude (Republican) has written an ‘official’ resolution denouncing Richard Dawkins.
THAT the Oklahoma House of Representative strongly opposes the invitation to speak on the campus of the University of Oklahoma to Richard Dawkins of Oxford University, whose published statements on the theory of evolution and opinion about those who do not believe in the theory are contrary and offensive to the views and opinions of most citizens of Oklahoma.
THAT the Oklahoma House of Representatives encourages the University of Oklahoma to engage in an open, dignified, and fair discussion of the Darwinian theory of evolution and all other scientific theories which is the approach that a public institution should be engaged in and which represents the desire and interest of the citizens of Oklahoma.
Why Mr. Thomsen! It almost sounds as if youve been having little chit-chats with Dr. Egnor!
Well, if this ‘resolution’ is an invitation, Mr. Thomsen, Id be happy to discuss ‘Darwinian theory of evolution’ with you, at your leisure. I live about three blocks from the Capital. Wouldnt be a problem at all.
I look forward to hearing from you!
