About a year ago Evolutionary biologist Richard Sternberg decided to publish a paper making the case for "intelligent design." Almost immediately he came under severe attack.
"They were saying I accepted money under the table, that I was a crypto-priest, that I was a sleeper cell operative for the creationists," said Steinberg, 42 , who is a Smithsonian research associate. "I was basically run out of there."
What is the Smithsonian so afraid of, intelligent debate? Dissent from their religion of choice?
Below is a link to what I see as a pretty fair and balanced article on the issue. To me, this sounds like a battle against Galileo.
