Talking About Evolution
I finally agree with a member of the Bush administration. John Marburger is the White House science adviser. He agrees with 48 Nobel laureates. And over 500 scientists named Steve.
Speaking at the annual conference of the National Association of Science Writers, Marburger fielded an audience question about "Intelligent Design" (ID), the latest supposedly scientific alternative to Charles Darwin's theory of descent with modification. The White House's chief scientist stated point blank, "Intelligent Design is not a scientific theory." And that's not all -- as if to ram the point home, Marburger soon continued, "I don't regard Intelligent Design as a scientific topic."Now if he could only convince his boss.
