However, Thursday’s upcoming meeting is apparently aimed at provoking me (if I can attend) and other pro-science participants into not only discussing but interrupting. CORR will present a two-and-a-half hour long documentary, “Teaching Origins Objectively.” This is propaganda pimped by John Calvert at the ID Network about the mock trial that the Kansas State Board of Education was assanine enough to waste time and money on in May of 2005. The image from the email I received announcing the meeting is posted below, as well as information concerning another showing by Ackerman of the documentary in Wichita on April 12th.
