The jokes write themselves.
Oklahoma City Engineering Club invited ‘Oklahomans for Excellence in Science Education‘ big-wig Vic Hutchison at their next meeting. It was actually kind of nice– Biologists make fun of the engineer–>Creationist connection (aka the Salem Hypothesis), and here in OKC we have an engineering group happy to hear about biology! They even had Dr. Fincke speak a while back! Yay!
Yeah, you know that couldnt last.
The Creationists in OKC Engineering Club finally had enough. They threw a tantrum, and Vic was ‘disinvited’ from speaking.
I regret to inform you that I must cancel your talk at the Oklahoma City Engineering Club for May 3, 2009. The officers have determined that it is not their desire to have controversial subjects presented at our luncheons. After your talk was announced, another member insisted on having a rebuttal speaker on intelligent design.
Gawd I feel so awful for the pro-science folks in their group. You know they have to be mortified… Not just not inviting another ‘evolander’, they actually had to disinvite Vic.
As to the Creationists: BAAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWW LOL! Sorry science wont conform to your ignorance like an engineering club. So sad *sarcastic frowny face*
