This is a fascinating interview between two people that have absolutely no idea what they are talking about. Is this the sum total of Berlinski's book? On both sides, there has been a striking lack of research. Davis remarks about "Expelled": "...how the scientific community has attacked anybody that has propounded intelligent design, that careers have been ruined. Richard Sternberg is a case in point..."It is interesting that most of the people that commented did so negatively. Could this be another case of the GOP base deviating from the leadership in a particular issue? I would like to think so.
Sternberg didn't lose his job, he was an unpaid editor. His career wasn't ruined. He resigned from the Smithsonian six months before the flap that got media attention, and then he was rehired in 2006.
Berlinski states: "When you read a headline, “another triumph for Darwinian theory,” you say to yourself, “uh oh, another problem.""
Also not true.
Evolution is a booming field with daily fossil and genetic discoveries that overwhelmingly support the theory. Yet another example of a disturbing conservative/anti-science connection. This will sink the GOP.
