As the government latest staff report confirms, the employees of the Smithsonian were busy spreading misinformation about Dr. Richard Sternberg, an editor who had allowed a paper on intelligent design to be published in the Proceedings of the Biological Society of Washington. Marily Schotte, for example, was spreading the rumor that Sternberg had a degree in theology. This rumor was false: Sternberg's two PhDs are in Molecular Evolution and Theoretical Biology.

But the Smithsonian's staff weren't the only ones spreading misinformation about Sternberg; Eugenie Scott, who is the director of the lobby group NCSE, wrote this in an email to the Smithsonian:

Regarding von Sternberg's views, he is, in fact, a YEC [young-earth creationist]. He is a member of the "Baraminology Study Group", a group of YECs attempting to discern the amount of generic variation typifying a created kind, or Baramin. [From the appendix, page 31]
