California Wild Article, Update

In Monday's post I linked to, and quoted from, an article by Eugenie Scott published in the magazine California Wild. Some of the facts in the passage that I quoted are currently in dispute. For that reason I have decided to remove that post until the situation is resolved.

Chris Matthews really nailed Eugenie on HARDBALL last night. My heart sank.

I read the article in California Wild. What problems are claimed? I don't see them.

WingNutDaily has an article about it. Whether everything they say is true or not, I don't know.

I have read the Eugenie Scott article and the WorldNetDaily articles. WorldNetDaily clearly mischaracterizes her article. Are there other issues? If there are, I can't discover what they are. I urge you to enumerate them...

I have been searching for information about what Caldwell really did propose to the school district. But so far, I have not been able to find any specific information. Even Caldwell's legal complaint (which I downloaded and read through) sheds no light on what Caldwell wanted to add to the school curriculum. It seems like Caldwell and Co. are keeping things awfully "close to the vest".

My law degree is also from George Washington U. That's no guarantee that one is not a complete nut (as many people remind me, from time to time). It is certainly no guarantee that one understands the science.

If Mr. Caldwell is unable to detail what he claims as "libel," I'd put the link back in. Has he threatened to sue you, too?

As best I can tell, he's claiming that he did not cite publications from which the material he tried to have inserted into the curriculum come. In no way can that be construed as libel, even were it accurate.
