Ever wonder what the creationists' next move will be? The National Center for Science Education might know, and if so, this talk by Eugenie Scott, NCSE's executive director, will be highly interesting:
"What Will the Creationists Do Next?"
3:00 p.m. on April 15
Doheny Memorial Library on the University of Southern California campus.
Her talk is part of the Darwin Today: Evolution and Scientific Thought symposium at USC, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on April 15. Also featured are Donald Johanson, director of the Institute for Human Origins, and Steve Finkel, David Bottjer and Craig Stanford, all of USC. Further details.
My money is on a new creationist slogan: Share the power of the ivory tower.
They are going to claim that it is undemocratic to have nearly all professorships held by godless liberals, and that affirmative action is required to even the odds: "Qualified applicants are considered for employment without regard to age, race, color, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, disability, veteran status, or belief in evolution." Brilliant!
Got a better one?
