First, the webcast is here.
I’ve been trying to listen in as I’m taking care of Diane, who has something flu-like, so I’ve heard just parts of it. But there seemed to be a couple of state representatives at the start of the thing saying things that will be very interesting if the legislature takes up the science standards and adopts antievolution-friendly revisions.
So far, I’ve heard five antievolution speakers hacking up the same old argument hairballs as their long-ago intellectual forebears. There has been one pro-science speaker that I’ve heard.
This seems to coincide with my feeling that the daytime meeting would give a disproportionate voice to antievolutionists.
One amusing thing I’ve heard is bringing up a change in presentation of horse evolution as indicating that there is no evidence of evolution. The speaker ignores the fact that the prior chart mentioned was made in support of a disconfirmed theory, orthogenesis. Yeah, science changes; that’s an advantage.
