Some of you might know that Im wanting to start a club this fall along the lines of 'Oklahoma Students for Science Education' (eh havent decided on a name) to help graduate/medical/nursing students learn how to present science/evolution/their research to laypeople. We got a new microbiology professor/student adviser this year, and I walked in on her, the retiring adviser, and a professor discussing how disgusted they were that people they graduated with (these are middle-aged ladies), PhDs in microbiology, could know nothing about evolution.
This will sound odd, but that was music to my ears!
I didnt want to interrupt, but I ventured that I was hoping to start a club in the fall, to which one professor bellowed "HAHA! An Intelligent Design club! HAHAHA!" hehehe So I think OSSE will be a well received idea, and I might be able to convince this new lady to be the academic adviser of my club! YAY!
