Radical Darwinism: On display now at the Smithsonian Institute (BUMPED with video)

UPDATE: Included in this bumped post is a trailer for the soon-to-be-released (Feb. 2008) movie "Expelled" starring Ben Stein. The movie is an expose about the crushing of dissent in the scientific community, and especially on college campuses. A place where there is supposed to be, you know, that whole "freedom of speech" thingy. One of the people this movie focuses on is the subject of the post below.

This article, from The Discovery Institute, makes one wonder, just who is more "radical" in their beliefs: "Bible-thumpin' fundamentalists", or your child's science teacher? Yeah, you're right. That one was a gimme. Seems that Neo-Ultra-Darwnists don't like to have their arguments interrupted by debate, disagreement, or (ahem) facts. Otherwise, all these people would lose out on grant money, they wouldn't be invited to the right parties, and they may not get to ride along on the AlGore "Wacky, Wacky, Warmin' Globe!!" tour.

So, what's the deal? Why are Darwinists afraid of debate?
