(p.198) 31 Unpleasantness
Among the Creationists

Jason Rosenhouse

Oxford University Press

In this chapter, the author shares unpleasant but interesting stories that took place during the Sixth International Conference on Creationism, held in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in August 2008. The first occurred during the Q&A of a talk entitled “Georgia Public School Board Members' Beliefs Concerning the Inclusion of Creationism in the Science Curriculum,” presented by Kathie Morgan of Liberty University. The talk's premise involved methods for bringing creationism into the classroom, in the form of supplementary materials beyond what state requirements mandate, that do not violate any Supreme Court rulings. The second took place during the talk given by Phil Pantana, who claimed that Charles Darwin's The Origin of Species was a racist book. The author also considers the views expressed by Ken Ham and A. Charles Ware in their book Darwin's Plantation: Evolution's Racist Roots regarding Darwin's role in popularizing racism, along with their claim that The Origin of Species was not about human evolution at all.
