Colorado Evolution Response Team
The Denver Post reports that scientists there are increasingly angry and ready to fight attacks on science:
In a state where public educators are afraid to put the word "evolution" in science aptitude tests and where the Republican candidate for lieutenant governor thinks biblical creationism counts as science, the Colorado Evolution Response Team has its work cut out.
CERT, as the new group refers to itself, seems ready for the fight.
"There is a cultural attack against science," said David Pollock, a genetic researcher at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center. "The president taking intelligent-design propaganda as gospel is not good."
Neither is having a lieutenant governor who wants creationism taught in schools.
