Over 600 scientists named 'Steve' agree!

To combat the use of lists of scientists that creationists often put together as a means of generating a shred of credibility - you know where scream about how they have 100 scientists who have signed some sort of statement endorsing the bland 'ID' theory as being worthwhile - to put those lists into perspective, some biologists and other defenders of evolution decided to engage in 'Project Steve' - where only scientists named 'Steve' (or Steven, Stephen, etc. - in honour of Stephen Jay Gould) would be collected in defense of evolution.

Since 'Steve's' represent a miniscule fraction of all scientists, comparison of the list size serves to put just how popular the creationists arguments REALLY are into perspective.

Congratulations to Project Steve on it's 600th Steve!
