Project Steve In honour of the late Stephen J Gould, the NCSE's "Project Steve" is a "tongue-in-cheek parody of a long-standing creationist tradition of amassing lists of "scientists who doubt evolution". Here's the FAQ, here are the Steves. (warning: All links on site seem to open in separate windows. Damn annoying)
  • Links opening in separate windows is a consumation devoutly to be wished.
  • Just to be clear - these are scientists who SUPPORT teaching evolution in schools.
  • One of my Profs, SteveTilley, loves wearing his "over 440 Steves agree" T-shirt, with a list on the back of all the prominant Steves in Evolution.
  • How long will it be before creationists counter with a list of scientists named John or who go by Mr./Dr. such and such?
  • Oh my god, I so totally have to have the "Honk if you understand punctuated equilibria" bumper sticker. Totally.
