Florida Today took a strong editorial stand against Florida's Senate Bill 1854, which would, if enacted, amend a section of Florida law to require "[a] thorough presentation and critical analysis of the scientific theory of evolution" in the state's public schools.
The chorus of support for the teaching of evolution continues, with statements from the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, the Saint Louis Science Center, and the Utah Museum of Natural History.
Not content only to honor those who have valiantly defended the teaching of evolution in the public schools with its annual Friend of Darwin award (presented for 2010 to Niles Eldredge), NCSE also presents the annual UpChucky, bestowed on the most noisome creationist of the year.
A spokesperson for the Alabama Department of Education claims that creationism is presented in the state education standards.
