NCSE’s Project Steve named after a Creationist

The NCSE has boasted about the list of people named Steve who are evolutionists. The irony is that The NCSE’s Project Steve is named after Stephen J. Gould who has been labeled by his peers as an “Accidental Creationist”.
I guess it’s too late for the NCSE to rescind their Steve list now that we know the Steve list was in honor of someone who is bad for evolution.
From THE ACCIDENTAL CREATIONIST Why Stephen Jay Gould is bad for evolution by Robert Wright:
Gould has advanced a distinctive view of evolution. He stresses its flukier aspects…In fact, if you really pay attention to what he is saying, and accept it, you might start to wonder how evolution could have created anything as intricate as a human being.
As it happens, creationists have been wondering the very same thing, and they’re delighted to have a Harvard paleontologist who will nourish their doubts. Gould is a particular godsend…
