A molecular biologist who isn't an evolutionist? Wow, that leaves out even Michael Behe!

Only you refuse to recognize that scientific literature consistently refutes 99% of your arguments.

Interesting claim, but off-topic here. You could propose it as a new thread over at Proposed New Topics.

I didn't say I wasn't an evolutionist...

You accept a theory where 99% of its arguments are refuted by the scientific literature? And whose arguments you don't share, since you referred to them as "your arguments"? Interesting.

You might consider trying to come up with less hyperbolic statements than the ones from your first post. They got you some attention, but not necessarily the kind you want.

Just so we keep this thread on topic, this thread isn't about the origin of life or the molecular mechanisms of species change. You can find plenty of threads on those topics over at the Biological Evolution and Origin of Life forums.

Defeated in their "strengths and weaknesses" language, conservative members of the Texas State Board of Education still succeeded in promoting a creationist agenda when they pushed through a series of amendments addressing topics like evolution and the big bang. Details are in today's NYT:

Defeat and Some Success for Texas Evolution Foes

The article may require a subscription, but it's free.

The strategy now appears to be to attack science piecemeal at the secondary school level.
