Evolution can't be intelligently denied

The University of Vermont may well be guilty of egregious suppression of free speech, but declining to play host to an evolution denier is not evidence of it ("An intellectual cocoon," Feb. 7, an editorial decrying the rejection of Intelligent Design theorist Ben Stein as a Vermont commencement speaker).

You would rightly question the bona fides of an institution of higher learning that played host to a flat-earth proponent or to a self-proclaimed UFO abductee. Denying evolution is on a similar intellectual level.
