University of Oklahoma luvs Darwin!

Hey you remember last year, OU had all these super cool presentations by scientists and evilution-themed activities for Darwins 200th birthday and the 150th anniversary of ‘Origin’?

Remember how OK politicians and religious radicals had a conniption fit over it?

Well, the professor who spearheaded the Darwinabration, Piers Hale (comrade of the nefarious John Lynch), just won ‘The University of Oklahoma’s 2010 General Education Teaching Award‘!

The University of Oklahoma’s 2010 General Education Teaching Award has been presented to Piers Hale, Assistant Professor of the History of Science. This award is given “to the faculty member whose teaching is considered to have contributed most to the University-wide general education program.” It is the first time this award, inaugurated in 1994, has been given to a member of OU’s History of Science Department.

    He deserves it for his contribution to the Darwin 2009, if nothing else. By the way, you heard that Francisco Ayala is speaking at SNOMNH Thursday night @7 pm?

    Nefarious, eh? That would make me Piers’ evil toady sidekick, I guess 🙂
