In the how the hell did I miss this column
From the Independent Florida Alligator today:
What students learn about evolution in books is "fake" and has no scientific value, a Turkish neurosurgeon said to about 50 students Tuesday.
Human life is a result of Allah, not evolution, said Dr. Oktar Babuna, a controversial Muslim speaker.
In his speech, which was sponsored by Islam on Campus and cost $3,000, Babuna argued against Darwinism and said the only way to understand life on Earth is through Allah and the teachings of the Koran. Babuna said it is scientifically impossible for evolution to have occurred.
Yes, well Dr Dino says the only way to understand life on earth is to study God and the bible and the Discovery institute is telling us to study biology but think about an intelligent designer manufacturing parts.
he goes on
To further prove his point, he said fish could never have transformed into land animals because their internal systems are entirely different than those of land animals.
They paid to bring this guy in??? I guess a neurosurgeon with this level of biological knowledge has to make money somehow. I don't know how I missed this talk, but I am damn sure glad I did. Looking forward to the letters. The nice thing is that the reported response to his talk in the paper is largely negative and they responded a lot better than the gator basketball team.
