Eugene C. Ashby is a Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Chemistry at Georgia Institute of Technology, and a hardcore intelligent design creationist. As a creationist, Ashby has apparently made a zealous effort to perpetuate all the standard misunderstandings and untruths concerning evolution associated with creationism, many of which he published in his book (tract, really) Understanding the Creation/Evolution Controversy, in which he amply demonstrated that he does not understand the Creation/Evolution “controversy”. Oh yes, you will find the creationist distinction between macro- and microevolution, Haeckel’s embryos, and peppered moths, and that’s just the beginning. It’s really all there.
Ashby also supported the infamous disclaimer stickers in Cobb County, GA, put on biology textbooks proclaiming that evolution is “a theory, not a fact”. And, since he does indeed possess a legitimate degree (contrary to what you’d be led to expect from his support for the aforementioned sticker), a signatory to the Discovery Institute’s petition A Scientific Dissent From Darwinism.
Diagnosis: Pseudoscientist. Ashby has a real degree, but his education does not seem to have given him much grasp of science.
