Victoria Huang explains that evolution is key to medicine, agriculture, etc.

McLeroy is after her over language in the 21st Century Science statement, which she didn’t sign, but basically agrees with.

Audris Zidermanis is speaking too softly to hear. She’s got some sort of quotemine going on, though.

    Wade Warren teaches at a bible college in Louisiana. He was an “expert witness” during the Louisiana legislative hearings, as were two other “experts” from the same school.

    Don’t waste your time attacking Wade Warren’s credentials. He and I were graduate students together in the Department of Biology at Texas A&M University, where he earned his Ph.D.

    I don’t see where anyone tried to attack his credentials, though the random endorsement of some anonymous passerby would hardly be enough to chase me off that track.

    Then by all means, stay on track.

    His research expertise is neurobiology, specifically, circadian rhythms of birds and mammals. He studied with Vincent Cassone, and you can probably google up some of his work.

    Nevertheless, his part in the hearings was to testify about the issue of academic freedom (albeit centered on “strengths and weaknesses of evolution”). The fact that he teaches at a Christian college is not nearly as relevent as whether or not he is right about the issue, and that is the track to stay on.
