Prof. Nicholas Gotelli
, a scientist in the biology department of the University of Vermont has a wit sharp enough to cut yourself on.
He was solicited (yes solicited) by the Discovery Institute
(A don't-think-tank of creationists masquerading as a serious research institute) to set up a debate at his campus. The admittedly polite request
is a little confusing considering the Discovery Institutes arrogant comments
on Prof. Gotelli's editorial at Burlingtonfreepress.com earlier that month.
It's worth reading the full article just for Prof. Gotelli's response. Being clever, intelligent and witty: You're doing it right.
