They are dangerous

“[The creationists and the Discovery Institute]  are not interested in science, and they are not interested in education. They are interested in political power. They are dangerous.” (Vincent Cassone, chair of the University of Kentucky Biology Department). [1]

In an interesting interview with Vincent Cassone, chair of the University of Kentuck Biology Department, we learn how it is he was appointed to the final expert review panel for the Pearson public school biology textbook. Cassone makes this call at the end of the interview for all scientists to work for the cause of good science in the public science classroom. All good scientists must work to counter the lies, and the legal and political machinations of the creationists. It is a powerful call.
