Kam Sripada reports in the Brown Daily Herald that "Princeton President Shirley Tilghman also criticized intelligent design at a science symposium in early November."
She expressed concern over how Americans use scientific knowledge, citing general disbelief of global warming, NASA's reprioritizing of manned flights to Mars over other projects and the debate on evolution."I can see a growing disconnect between what is happening in science and the way scientific information is being challenged and used by the public,"
Tilghman said in a Nov. 8 Daily Princetonian article.For Tilghman, it is "most troubling" and "shocking" that in some schools Darwin's concept of natural selection is considered "controversial."
