|yes, I'm a Lehigh grad and no he doesn't teach (or didn't) ID in class. This, of course was before he achieved any real fame (infamous) at least in my eyes cause I had never heard of him. The first day of class he mentioned he was a bit of a heretic in the biology community because of a book he wrote. That was the extent of it. Looking back I remember only one clear implication and that was the final exam. As a bonus question, he asked the statistical probability of monkeys banging on a type writer question. Again, that was it. I later saw his book and really began to understand who he was but he was a very good, passionate teacher. In that sense I often find myself sympathetic to him even though I don't agree with much he says about the subject.|
As far as sexy, I'm not really the one to judge that. :D
Thanks for shedding some light on the subject, skeptic.
And I'm no biologist, nor have I ever studied monkeys or numbers but I bet there is a 99% probability that if you give a monkey a typewriter he's going to bang on it at some point.
