Interesting. No mention of the DI and not a word about Project Steve either.

More than 50% and of the “biologist” most are medical doctors many of whom may have never taken and evolutionary biology class. Also, it is important to point out that signatories aren’t all saying that evolution is completely false as AiG hopes their audience will take this headline.
