Dissent from Darwin II

In a previous post I discussed the 700 PhD petition. In a very similar vein, Physicians and Surgeons for Scientific Integrity is a club you can join (for the princely sum of $350!) to advertise your mistrust of evolution:

The purpose of PSSI is to educate the public about the scientific facts regarding the hypothesis of Darwinian macroevolution.

Immediately below this statement is a list of "resources" consisting of a handfull of well-known creationist books and DVDs, but not a single scientific paper, no Origin of Species, nothing by Dawkins, or Gould, or Maynard Smith, not even a single biology textbook. How's that for scientific integrity?

Amusingly, they apparently don't have too many members and had to resort to padding out their list of signatories by listing the names three different ways. And by including dentists. ;-)

The fact that they're faking these signatures is hysterical.

There really is no debate about the science of evolution in the scientific community, and this is just evidence of it.

There clearly is a debate, or else who are you attacking in this website?
