Previous link to audio. In general, I have been doing rough transcripts but midway through the first attempt with this, my computer crapped out. So I am posting the audio and may update what was basically said later in the week;
William Quinn Mp3 Texas Academy of Sciences pres-elect. Allen Leshner. Any attempt to introduce religion is bad science. Remove all s&w language.
Lorenzo Sadoon MP3 I particularly liked this one. He brought up that you have to understand a theory before you can critique it. McLeroy reading Kenneth Miller's Only a Theory asked Sadoon what book he recommended-Dawkins Blind Watchmaker.
Joseph Navarro MP3 embarrassed that state is in this position. Said teacher didn't believe in evolution, was a Christian, and all he rmemebers is that she thought it invalid.
Joseph Martin MP3 McKinney academic freedom. Thomas Cootz book. Good example of academic freedom but bad science. Einstein didn't say I don't like Newton's physics I'm going to replace it.
Elaine Ellerton MP3 does not attempt to explain origin of life. does not say came from monkeys, evolution not random, not disagreed upon by scientists. Proven theory is not a hypothesis. Scientific method purely objective.
Joe Zurich MP3 Poor job as teachers explaining the method. A debate is one of the highest methods of Blum taxonomy. If start with debate, many students will salk awy with little knowledge. b competing theories, predictive, tested based on scientific finding holes is not exactly a debate.
Joe Cosa MP3 gobbledygook.Says Galileo was the only guy with a telescope so he wasn't peeer reviewed.
Anita Gordon MP3 Dunbar brought up Warner Abner. Nobel Laurate who wais that genetic codes have limitations and can only go so far. asked how she teaches the fossil record?
David Washburn MP3 Now after 20 years the s&w words are tainted. Not boards fault
Patrick Herndon MP3 public doesn't know what science is and what it is not. Failure of secondary education.
Alexia Bennett MP3 theories well substantiated. Public believes theories are nebulous by isolated scientists.
Chuck Hempstead MP3 speaking for Mike Baldwin, pres science teachers association. respect the expertise in teams and feedback by qualified educators. website SBOE anti-evolution.
Garrett Mies MP3 student poli-sci. Free Market Foundation left out part of TFN quote some board member says that's ridiculous and McLeroy tells her she can't say that.
Bryce Pearsey MP3 Granbury. Is TFN's PR about university a veiled threat? Mercer. College entrance standards. What does the SAT in math and science have to do with evolution? Church schools.
John Woods Mp3 Thomas Aquinas quote about "to one without faith". Meaning of language has changed in 20 years. Creationists kept out-that's silly. Still use eveolution to do biology.ID is not science. Not just about good intentions of the school board but atoub appearance. S&W hostile to science. McLeroy-Aquinas quote cuts both way.
