Wichita Eagle: There Is No Controversy
From an editorial in the Wichita Eagle:
The scientific community's boycott of the Kansas State Board of Education's upcoming show trial of evolution is right, because the very premise of the hearings -- that evolution is a "theory in crisis" -- is so wrong.
There is no "controversy" about evolution in the mainstream scientific community.
That said, it could be good that a Topeka attorney, Pedro Irigonegaray, has agreed to appear at the hearings -- not to defend evolution, but to defend Kansas children and taxpayers.
