Philosophers to debate evolution; scientists protest

Panda's Thumb - Fri, 2016-10-21 17:39
Joel Velasco of Texas Tech University will debate Paul Nelson of the Discovery Institute on the topic, “Is Darwin’s theory flourishing or floundering?” according to an article by Victoria Cavazos in Hilltop Views, the student newspaper of St. Edward’s University of Austin, Texas. We will not discuss whether it is floundering or foundering; it is doing neither, and 11 science faculty expressed their opposition to the debate, which they called a “debate.” The signatories to...

Plan to defend against war on science

Panda's Thumb - Mon, 2016-10-17 16:38
I just received an e-mail (along with half a million of my best friends) from Shawn Otto, the founder of sciencedebate.org, touting his recent article, “A plan to defend against the war on science,” in Scientific American. I thought it was a good article, but a plan it is not; the “plan” shows up in the second-last paragraph and says only, There are solutions, however. Sciencedebates.org [sic] is certainly a start. Evidence shows the public... Matt Young http://www.mines.edu/~mmyoung
