PZ Myers: A despairing perspective on American education

Paul Zachary "PZ" Myers is an American biology professor at the University of Minnesota Morris (UMM), answering evolutionary developmental biology (evo-devo) questions using zebrafish. PZ Myers is the author of the award-winning Pharyngula science blog, hosted on Freethought Blogs network, and a columnist for Free Inquiry, published by the Center for Inquiry.

A self-avowed "godless liberal" and outspoken atheist, PZ Myers is a public critic of the intelligent design (ID) / creationist movement and an activist in the American creation-evolution controversy.

PZ Myers is widely regarded as a confrontationalist and is notorious for having destroyed a Communion wafer, Bible, Quran, and copy of The God Delusion on video as political and philosophical statements.
