Kansas and NBC

Thu, 12 Aug 1999 23:07:45 EDT

Did anyone else catch the NBC evening news report on the Kansas board of
education vote? The chair of the board (I missed her name) was interviewed
(briefly, of course) and she emphasized how she didn't see the evidence for
the transition of dogs to dolphins.
Sound familiar? Like maybe a third or fourth-hand version of Phil Johnson's
rodents to whales? It was clear that this board chair has no idea of what
evolutionary theory actually says, let alone whether it is right or wrong.
Sounds like PJ has sown the wind, now Kansas will reap the whirlwind!
(Sorry, but I just couldn't pass up the literary allusion!!) :-)
