The Society for the Study of Evolution

| 6 Comments | 1 TrackBack

The Society for the Study of Evolution, which is ironically based in Kansas, has redone their website: http://www.evolutionsociety.org. The website contains information about evolution and science education, statements from scientific societies on evolution, a white paper on evolution and society, and many more interesting things.

The objectives of the Society for the Study of Evolution are the promotion of the study of organic evolution and the integration of the various fields of science concerned with evolution.

The Society publishes the scientific journal Evolution and holds annual meetings in which scientific findings on evolutionary biology are presented and discussed.

The Society for the Study of Evolution holds its annual meeting with The Society of Systematic Biolologists and The American Society of Naturalists. This conference is simply called “Evolution.” Evolution 2005 is at the University of Alaska, Fairbanks and begin June, 10th.

I will be attending the conference and presenting some of my doctoral research on simulating sequence evolution. Prof. Steve Steve will be traveling with me to the conference and will be at my talk (early Sunday morning) if anyone wants to meet him.

Evolution in Alaska from The Panda's Thumb on June 14, 2005 1:58 PM

Evolution is not always progressive, but there was progress in Alaska last week. Read More

Evolution 2005 is the latest incarnation of the place that a serious research program should have a presence, if it affects evolution.

Consequently, were “intelligent design” a serious branch of research, there should be a string of presentations that point to annual advancements in the idea and its applications, dating back at least to 1992.

I understand there was one poster session a couple of years ago, but that year in and year out, intelligent design progress has not been reported in this meeting.

I had hoped to make the meeting this year – especially in Alaska – but it’s not going to happen. Reed, please make sure you check the program and report on whether there is any action for intelligent design, or for any other idea that suggests Darwin was all wet.

I think it’s important to establish this record. At some hearing in an official capacity, an attorney should ask specifically for those science meetings at which ID results have been reported. This is a big one, if not the big one – and true to pseudo-science, ID has failed to make a showing, for 13 years.

The conference’s program is already available for checking.

It would be very easy for pseudo-science to have made it into the conference since the organizers accepted all applications.

The place to look for that would be the 2005 Creation MEGA conference, 17-22 July at Liberty University, featuring appearances by Jerry Falwell.

Watch it, Reed. There are a lot of people in Kansas who study evolution or support the studying of evolution. We probably have just as many (per capita) as you have in Georgia.

Now, if only we could get our State Board of Education “science hearings” subcommittee members to do a little studying. Unfortunately, they couldn’t even be bothered to fully read the standards they so strongly criticized.

Senator who questioned women’s suffrage wants elections job

Posted on Wed, Jun. 01, 2005

TOPEKA, Kan. - A state senator who once said women’s voting was a sign that American society didn’t value families enough now wants to be Kansas’ top elections official.

Kay O’Connor announced Wednesday that she is seeking the Republican nomination for secretary of state next year…

Forward, into the 19th century!
