PZ Meyers admits he’s not the politest person in the world. In this talk he throws about some rather abrupt insults at the creationist movement and why he is justified in doing them. He mentions his talks with Dawkins

Prof. Paul Zachary Myers works with zebrafish in the field of evolutionary developmental biology (evo-devo). A selfavowed godless liberal and outspoken atheist, he is a vocal skeptic of all forms of religion, superstition, spirituality and pseudoscience.

He is quoted as having “nothing but contempt for Intelligent Design”, arguing that it is “fundamentally dishonest”. In 2009 Myers was named the American Humanist Association’s Humanist of the Year.

I work in a C of E school and they desperately try and push the creationist view as an “equally valid” alternative to the actual facts. When you are interviewed you are asked outright if you can uphold the school’s “Christian ethos” in your science lessons, the message is quite clear.

Off topic:
Prof PZ Myers looks a lot like Axel Rose did at Reading Festival.

@Emmylou79 – so what did you say, that you agree in Adam and Eve etc and that children should be taught the new testament as a non-factual unscientific ideology?

And the Lord did sayeth unto the serpent ‘Sorry mate, I know you were possessed by Satan, but I’ve got to take yer legs’
We should definitely teach this stuff in schools -what we lose in scientific understanding we’ll gain in top quality comedians and satirists.
