A, O, Oh way to go Ohio

Gooooooood morning, America! I am delighted today to link you to the announcement that Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio is planning a rip-roaring, ID-bashing celebration of Charles Darwin's legacy in 2008-9.

Events will include a "series of lectures by prominent researchers and other events to make clear the enduring soundness and profound impact of Darwin's concept." Oh yeah.

Case Western is collaborating with the Cleveland Museum of Natural History to bring a diversity of speakers ranging from evolutionary biologist Sean Carroll, whose website has some very pretty pictures showing genes and evolution in action, to U.S. District Judge John Jones who rightly ruled in the famous 2005 Dover, Pennsylvania trial that teaching intelligent design in school was unconstitutional because intelligent design is fundamentally creationism, not science.
