NCSE Evolution Education Update for 2011/04/08

(by NCSE Deputy Director Glenn Branch)

Dear Friends of NCSE,

Bad news from Tennessee, where antievolution legislation passed the
House and is under consideration by a Senate committee. Plus the
winner of NCSE's UpChucky award for 2010.

Dear Friends of NCSE,

The antievolution bills in Tennessee advance, but the antievolution
bill in New Mexico is dead. NCSE presents a preview of Berkman and
Plutzer's Evolution, Creationism, and the Battle to Control America's
Classrooms, a spokesperson for the Alabama Department of Education
claims -- wrongly -- that creationism is included in the Alabama state
science standards, and the Indiana Department of Education offers its
voice for evolution.

Dear Friends of NCSE,

A Friend of Darwin award for Niles Eldredge. Plus the latest poll on

Dear Friends of NCSE,

The antievolution legislation in Tennessee progresses. The eminent
evolutionary biologist Walter M. Fitch is dead. The opposition to the
antievolution legislation in Tennessee continues. The adjournment of
the Kentucky legislature means that the antievolution bill there is no
longer in play. And a reminder that there are still seats available on
the next NCSE excursion to the Grand Canyon.

Dear Friends of NCSE,

A busy week, with a new "intelligent design" bill in Texas, threats
against a British imam over his acceptance of evolution, a new
antievolution bill in Florida, a discussion of "Evolution Abroad" in
Scientific American, and the apparent death of the second
antievolution bill in Oklahoma.

Dear Friends of NCSE,

Opposition to Tennessee's House Bill 368 is mounting. In the meantime,
Scientific American offers a detailed report on new challenges for
evolution education, and NCSE presents a sample chapter from a new
biology textbook, Principles of Life.

Dear Friends of NCSE,

Plenty of news from statehouses around the country, with antievolution

in Tennessee.

Dear Friends of NCSE,

A Darwin Day resolution is introduced in Congress. The documentary
Kansas vs. Darwin is freely available on-line for a limited time. In
Mount Vernon, Ohio, a controversy involving creationism promises to
continue to linger, with a complaint filed by John Freshwater. And the
sixth antievolution bill of 2011 makes its appearance, in Tennessee.

Dear Friends of NCSE,

A creationist publisher's plans to submit "intelligent design"
material for approval in Texas are revealed. Plus the philosopher
Ernan McMullin is dead; the Hechinger Report addresses "The evolution
of teaching evolution"; NCSE launches a new multimedia page; and Bill
Nye "The Science Guy" affirms, "The main idea in all of biology is
evolution." And, of course, a further reminder about Darwin Day and
Evolution Weekend.
