“Flock of Dodos: The Evolution-Intelligent Design Circus” will play twice in Wichita in May. Here is a portion of an email that I received from Glenn Branch at the National Center of Science Education with the details. The showing at Wichita State is on May 7th at 7pm in the CAC theater. It’s free.

CORR Recap: “Teaching Origins Objectively”

March 30, 2007 at 5:14 am | Posted in Journal of Anti-Science meetings | 7 Comments

This meeting was a joke. Only 10 people showed, including myself and a WSU faculty scientist that I recognized. Fitting for March, at the end there were only 4 including J. David Lehman, who is apparently taking a vacation from rescuing Mormons from their own religion.

CORR returns to Wichita State

March 26, 2007 at 11:49 pm | Posted in Journal of Anti-Science meetings | 2 Comments

Christians for Origins and Religious Research (CORR) has returned to holding meetings on the Wichita State campus after a hiatus of a few months following the departure of J. David Lehman, a thinning crowd, and a dwindling interest of the students and other regulars involved. I attended a few of the meetings after Lehman left, and Dr. Paul Ackerman (ICR and AiG listed creation scientist, CORR faculty sponsor, and psychology co-chair) took over as the main presenter. As main presenter, Dr. Ackerman did his best to stay out of misrepresenting science while focusing more on his version of Christian history. Because he stayed out of the ugly practice of misinforming the public about science, I didn’t have much to say at these meetings and did my best to stay out of the discussion. 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.

Hiatus, Schmiatus

February 20, 2007 at 2:39 am | Posted in Essays | 2 Comments

I haven’t posted on this blog for a few months, and it appears as though some who support my efforts are worried that I have dropped out. If I could choose to rid myself of this immense burden I would do so, but I can’t. The scientific illiteracy of the general public is so everpresent and damaging that any attempt to avoid it is an exercise in futility.

I’ve been focusing on my studies while trying to assess the situation with the creationism-intelligent design movement as we have undoubtably reached a transitional period, and working on a coherent plan of action that will help squash the current anti-science movements, prevent them from happening in the future, and allow the public to embrace science.

Thank you for your support.

Evolution + Creation at St. James Episcopal Church

The St. James Episcopal Church at 3750 E. Douglas is hosting a series concerning this whole silly debate. It appears to look honest though. I know several of the presenters, and all that I know except 2 of them are scientifically credible.
