Liveblagging V: Driving Ms. Hazy

Steve Lyons, parent, grandparent: Words mean things. Otherwise things would be nonsense. This is a coup d'etat. Theory is redefined, treated as if they were facts. S&W gives all sides. Teach good science.

Daniel Bolnick, professor at UT: 1500 members of 21st Century Coalition. Don't reintroduce S&W. JSTOR has a bajillion articles supporting evolution, none denies it.

At this point, I went to see a press conference by the Texas affiliate of Focus on the Family (Focus on your own damned family!), and then to watch Genie, Texas Freedom Network, and a coalition of scientists talk to the press about the importance of good science standards.

Videos shortly. And check out audio from the meeting at curricublog.
