More than 800 highly qualified scientists support evolution

Oh, and they’re all named “Steve.”  It’s all part of “Project Steve,” begun in 2003.   These Steves are mostly biologists and they are mostly PhDs.  They are all highly qualified and the are each affiliated with highly reputable institutions.  They’ve all publicly agreed to this statement, in honor of Stephen J. Gould:

Evolution is a vital, well-supported, unifying principle of the biological sciences, and the scientific evidence is overwhelmingly in favor of the idea that all living things share a common ancestry. Although there are legitimate debates about the patterns and processes of evolution, there is no serious scientific doubt that evolution occurred or that natural selection is a major mechanism in its occurrence. It is scientifically inappropriate and pedagogically irresponsible for creationist pseudoscience, including but not limited to “intelligent design,” to be introduced into the science curricula of our nation’s public schools.
