Creationists to explore link between Hitler and evolution at Michigan State conference

Michigan State is home to several other prominent evolutionary biologists, including Robert Pennock, who testified in a 2005 federal case that prohibited the teaching of intelligent design in public schools.
The university is also the lead partner in The BEACON Center for the Study of Evolution in Action, which is funded by the National Science Foundation and promotes evolution-related research and education.
The Oklahoma-based Creation Summit group reserved a room at the university’s business school through a religious student group – which did not know about specific topics for discussion until later.
The creationist group said the event was planned at the university in East Lansing because four of its board members live in Michigan, but members plan to organize additional conferences at other universities.
