This Oklahoma Chapter of Americans United for Separation of Church and State sponsored 'debate' took place between my good friend, noted virology blogger and HIV 1 and epigenetics researcher Abbie Smith and a local pastor. Steve Kern is married to a state legislator (Sally Kern) who is hellbent on getting laws passed in Oklahoma to have Creationism taught in science classes.
Abbie came into the public eye some years ago before she started graduate school when she publicly humiliated Michael Behe by showing beyond all doubt that Behe doesn't understand HIV. The scattered remains of Judy Mikovits' science career bob in Abbie's wake, as well as the discredit worn by several other formerly important and noteworthy biology researchers whom Abbie has one by one exposed as complete frauds.
Having done all of this, the future is limitless for Abbie just as soon as she finishes her PhD studies.
