Legion of Steve's speak out for Evolution!

The following is taken from Bob Park's What's New column. It's so neat I have to share.


PROJECT STEVE: THE EVOLUTIONARY ADVANTAGE OF BEING "STEVE."

In 2001, the Discovery Institute published ads listing names of 100 "scientists" who doubted Darwinism. The National Center for Science Education parodied the ads by collecting signatures just of scientists named "Steve" on a statement endorsing evolution. "Steve" was chosen to honor the late Stephen J. Gould, a renowned evolutionary biologist. The 440 "Steves" are co-authors of a paper in the Annals of Improbable Research, and can note on their resumes that they co-authored a paper with Stephen Hawking and Nobel laureates Steve Weinberg and Steve Chu.
