Michael Ruse does some special pleading

On the opening night of the CFI World Conference, Michael Ruse gave a presentation in which he stated that teaching evolution in schools is unconstitutional in the U.S. because it implies that the biblical creation story isn’t true. Law FAIL!

Kristine at Amused Muse was there… He refused to answer her pointed and lucid question about what that means for teaching other sciences.

The comments are worth reading, too.

    Vis-à-vis your posts on creationism and evolution, did you catch this week’s Quirks and Quarks?

    I am in Maryland in the moment at a conference, so missed Quirks and Quarks. Thanks for the heads-up and the link, Milan!
