Revolutionary Minds

No one, in our estimation, is more deserving of recognition than Nick Matzke, the public information project director for the National Center for Science Education and a frequent contributor the The Panda's Thumb.

That's why we're glad to see Matzke is one of nine "Revolutionary Minds" profiled in the November 2006 issue of Seed magazine, now available at newsstands.

Earlier this week we linked to a post by Matzke on PT about Nazi book burnings, which were fueled in part by textbooks on evolution and volumes critical of Christianity. That shows just how outrageous Richard Weikart's ravings, that Darwinism played a key role in the rise to power of the Nazis, are.

This past week, Matzke also supplied an easily digestible graph of the evolution of Hominin cranial capacity that, after just one brief glance, gives lie to the whole, laughable, notion that, "various forms of life began abruptly through an intelligent agency, with their distinctive features already intact – fish with fins and scales, birds with feathers, beaks, and wings."

It seems like only yesterday -- okay, maybe it was a month ago -- that Matzke utterly destroyed Michael Behe's rather shopworn assertion that the bacterial flagellum is just too complex to have evolved.

Where did he find time to talk to Seed magazine?
