Defense Will Put Darwinists on the Stand in Kansas

The Darwinists in Kansas have decided to participate in the upcoming hearings on teaching evolution called for by the Kansas State Board of Education.

Thw Wichita Eagle is reporting that attorney Pedro Irigonegaray will defend the Darwinists recommendations for state standards and call Darwinists to address the board.

“The majority concluded that a response is needed,” he said.

“Our witnesses will be called in a timely manner, and they will have relevant and important information,” he added.

Currently, the Kansas Science 2005 website lists 24 scientists and scholars who have already agreed to address the board in support of proposed revisions that would require both the scientific strengths and weaknesses of Darwinian evolution to be presented in science classes.
