The National Center for Science Education has now signed up more than 1,000 scientists named “Steve.” Here’s the petition that all 1082 Scientist Steves have signed:

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.

  1. Steve says:

    Now, how about a list of 1,000 persons named Steve who are atheists?

  2. Hank says:

    You could probably find more atheist scientists who have a penchant for hentai tentacle porn and listed their religion as "Jedi" on the last census than scientists who actually buy this ID Creationist crap.

    • Tony Coyle says:

      At the 2001 census almost 400,000 people in the UK listed their religion as "Jedi".

      Recently, it emerged that eight officers in Scotland's largest (8000 strong) police force claimed Jedi as their religion!

      I don't have any data for the US – but I suspect the force to be even stronger here!
