   I visted the OSU Geological Museum yesterday, and came into the tail end
of two paleontologists talking about creationism in paleontology.  The one
gentleman was doing research into claims by creationists.  Apparently part
of his research centered on claims by one creationist "scientist" that are
based on claims by, of all people, Robert T. Bakker!

   According to this gentleman, under the governorship of Slick Willie a law
was passed in Arkansas requiring creationism be taught alongside
evolution"ism" in the science classroom (it was repealed recently).
