More on the hearings

The Panda's Thumb found this exchange in as the NY Times's explains that Kansas Begins Hearings on Diluting Teaching of Evolution:
"Can you tell us, sir, how old you believe the Earth is?" the lawyer, Pedro Irigonegaray, asked William S. Harris, a chemist, who helped write the proposed changes to the state standards.

"I don't know," Dr. Harris replied. "I think it's probably really old."

Like, Joan Rivers old?

RSR is bringing the descriptions of the "witnesses" as the evening unfolds.

It sounds like a laugh-fest, but I imagine it was moments of entertainment interspersed with hours of mind numbing idiocy. Maybe TfK will make an appearance one of these days.
