Scopes Redux

The Kansas Board of Education has scheduled six days of courtroom-style hearings to begin today in Topeka. More than two dozen witnesses will give testimony and be subject to cross-examination, with the majority expected to argue against teaching evolution.

William Jennings Bryan, the prosecutor in the Scopes trial of 1925, said that trial was a "duel to the death" between evolution and Christianity. Apparently, the good folks in Kansas did not get the word.

For the next several days I will be publishing links and observations about the "trial" and I would be interested in hearing what my readers think about the all out assault on science in the 21st century.
