Scientists Named Steve

This post: features the quote:
The Discovery Institute, which is ground zero for the intelligent design movement, gathered at last count the signatures of 356 scientists who question evolution.

In response, the National Center for Science Education, which strongly defends the science of evolution, got 543 scientists named Steve to sign a defense of the theory.
Hilarious. And true. Here's the Project Steve home page at the NCSE site; it's named in honor of Stephen Jay Gould. They even have t-shirts for sale.

They're still accepting signatories named Steve (or Stephen, Steven, Esteban, Stienne, or Stephanie). Currently they're at 551 signatories. Surely there are more Scientist Steves than that. C'mon Steve!
