Here's the post from earlier today. I continue to listen and put up snippets of the people who went towards the end of November to speak about the science teks to the Texas State Board of Education.  I remind that these are some quick transcripts by me, and if you have a question, listen to the MP3.

Nancy Henschel  English, anthropology. Any aim that seeks to undermine science should be rejected.Mp3

Stephen Shafersman - Texas Citizens fo Scince. Impose anti-scientific view, keeps anti-scientific language. Students have no business . 3 anti evolution experts on committee. 2 University science professors who are creationists, their reasoning and insights poor and confused. 1988 weakness 1997 science standard in both cases donw for poor reasons. Most scientists did not accept the Piltdown man. Difference between scientific theories and hypotheses Mp3

Tom Davis- science conjectures invalid against observed reality. ID is a hypothesis, not a science, can't be verified (McElroy cut him off mid-stream to gripe at the audience). Unless it's testable, it's not science. MP3

Terry Maxwell- Theories are scientific consensus.Unreasonable to suggest otherwise. Mp3
