Who’s really trying to dumb down how evolution is presented in schools today? This episode of ID the Future takes a look at the curious case of the evolving Dr. Steven Schafersman and what we can learn from it about current debates over teaching evolution. Listen in as CSC Associate Director John West traces the changing rhetoric of Dr. Schafersman of the misnomered “Texas Citizens for Better Science,” and the next time you hear a Darwinist claim that there are no scientific controversies over evolution, remember the case of the evolving Dr. Schafersman.
