In His Cups
Robert Pennock, the philosopher of science who was a prominent witness for the plaintiffs in Kitzmiller v. Dover Area School Board Intelligent Design case has been named an American Association for the Advancement of Science Fellow for 2006. Pennock is being recognized for distinguished service in arguing against Intelligent Design by highlighting its philosophical deficits and fighting against its inclusion in science education.
Pennock, author of Tower of Babel: the Evidence Against the New Creationism, is a professor in the Lyman Briggs School of Science, the Department of Philosophy, the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, and the Ecology, Evolutionary Biology and Behavior graduate program at Michigan State University.
Congratulations on the well deserved honor.
