Low-Budget Remake

“Evolution is a ‘theory’ like gravity is a ‘theory,’” says Associate Professor of Biology Colin Purrington. “The low-budget remake of the Scopes trial in Kansas will make educated Kansans want to flee the state so that their children will not be subjected to quack scientific ideas such as intelligent design.”

To combat what he sees as religious fundamentalism harming science education, Purrington has made available on the Web a series of resources for public school science teachers and their supporters. Included are news items on evolution cases around the country, a list of gifts for “brave science teachers,” editorial cartoons, and t-shirts and stickers of Charles Darwin. He also plans to have his students design exhibits on evolution for children.
