WANTED: A Few Darwinists Willing to Defend Their Theory

If Kansas Darwinists continue to be shy about defending their theory in open public hearings, the Kansas State Board of Education can always consider advertising for witnesses to defend evolution. Here is a possible ad:

WANTED: State Board of Education urgently seeks Darwinists unafraid to present the "overwhelming evidence" for their theory in a fair and balanced public hearing. Applicants who regard the democratic process as stupid need not apply. Ditto for those who think open debate in a free society is pointless. Essential Qualification: enough self-confidence to engage one's opponents in a public forum that is not completely stacked in one's favor. Preferred Qualifications: an ability to rationally present evidence without resorting to conspiracy theories and ad hominem attacks; a willingness to answer rather than ignore tough questions posed by one's critics. Reasonable travel expenses will be paid. If such persons exist, please respond immediately to the Kansas State Board of Education.
