An effort was made to obtain the defendant's portion of the trial transcript. Unfortunately, it had not been transcribed at the time of the case (the state of Arkansas did not appeal Overton's ruling). This meant that we would be paying page transcription charges, not just copying charges. However, the court reporter said that her request for the original shorthand record came back with a "not found" result. These materials have apparently been mislaid at the storage facility that the state of Arkansas uses for older legal records. We are trying to come up with ways to get a more thorough search done so that these materials can be transcribed.

The article linked to below by science writer Roger Lewin contains a description of the defense witnesses testimony and includes transcriptions of small portions of the testimony given by of some of them during the trial.

Antievolutionists Say the Darndest Things
Antievolutionists often express outrage over alleged incivility from those who oppose their efforts to evade the establishment clause of the First Amendment. But they have no difficulty in dishing out the abuse themselves. Here is a sample from the Invidious Comparisons thread that documents egregious behavior on the part of the religious antievolution advocates.
IDC advocate Jonathan Wells:
These critics include embryologists, paleontologists, biochemists, molecular biologists, medical doctors, philosophers, and even lawyers. Unfortunately, the North American science-and-religion establishment has largely turned a deaf ear to these critics, preferring instead to abandon classical theology and embrace metaphysical materialism and moral relativism. But I see the situation as analogous to the last years of Soviet communism. A small, powerful elite controls all the official information outlets while the evidence against the official position swells quietly, like a wave building offshore. Someday soon, to the surprise of many people in academia and the media, the wave will break. I predict that the Darwinist establishment will come apart at the seams, just as the Soviet Empire did in 1990.Link
