Sour Grapes

Tom Willis, president of the Creation Science Association for Mid America located in Cleveland, Missouri, believes in a literal interpretation of the Bible. Unsurprisingly, he's unimpressed by the ringing defense of evolution demonstrated at the AAAS conference in St. Louis. Willis calls the scientists "desperate."

"Most would be out of a job if they couldn't sell evolution to children," Willis said.

Willis' more sophisticated cousins at the Discovery Institute share his view.

"I don't understand how you can have a discussion of intelligent design if you only invite critics," said John West, a senior fellow at Discovery.

Funny, RSR's sense is that the scientists gathered in St. Louis had a very rich discussion.
