This week, reporting through their faux news blog laughably entitled Evolution News, they lampoon Dr Eugenie Scott, the exiting director of the National Center for Science Education (NCSE) and her soon to be replacement, microbiologist Dr Ann Reid.

Unable to fight NCSE with facts and scientific data, they have once again turned to ad hominem attacks on the director and the scientists involved. Calling Dr Scott a liar and claiming the NCSE is a “science-denial group” the Discovery Institute shows that when your beliefs will not stand the test of science and reason, you can always turn to school ground antics and throw mud and name call.


The Discovery Institute claims that Scott has been lying when making the claim that evolution is an uncontested theory, yet they ignore the fact that this is in fact a true statement. In the scientific community, evolution is uncontested.
