Ken Miller Dissects the Creationists’ Next Tactic
Biologist Ken Miller, the Discovery Institute’s worst enemy, has three terrific guest posts at science writer Carl Zimmer’s blog, destroying the DI’s latest attempts to rewrite the history of the Dover creationism lawsuit:
The only relevant question at this point is why the Discovery Institute keeps highlighting its own failings in this way. Why are Casey and his employers now — three years after the Dover trial — trying to rehabilitate the tattered credibility of both Michael Behe and Pandas? What mischief are they planning now? The only conclusion I can draw is that they must be maneuvering for the next round of state board hearings or legislative sessions — and I’m concerned. These folks are a whole lot better at politics and public relations than they are at science, and that means that everyone who cares about science education should be on guard.
