Another undeserved award for Eugenie Scott
NCSE's executive director Eugenie C. Scott is to receive the UCSF Medal, the highest award of the University of California, San Francisco, on April 23, 2008. In a letter to Scott, the university's chancellor J. Michael Bishop wrote, "The award is offered in recognition of your distinguished advocacy on behalf of science in the public arena. The UCSF Medal is given in lieu of an honorary degree and is the highest honor that the campus confers."
As I have noted here and here, Eugenie Scott has brazenly, hypocritically and cynically urged teachers to use religion in a one-sided way to promote Darwinism in the public schools. Such one-sided use of religion in the public schools is a clear violation of the establishment clause.
