NCSE featured in The New York Times

NCSE was prominently featured in James Glanz's article "Montana Creationism Bid Evolves Into Unusual Fight," which appeared on Sunday, February 29, 2004, in The New York Times.

SfN Statement on Evolution and Intelligent Design

NCSE is pleased to announce a further addition to Voices for Evolution: a statement on evolution and intelligent design from the Society for Neuroscience, reading in part, "Recognizing that the theory of Evolution is the fundamental scientific theory or cornerstone that helps us to understand and study the origins and diversity of living organisms, the Society for Neuroscience supports teaching evolution in science classrooms, and opposes the assertion that Intelligent Design Theory (ID) is a valid scientific alternative."

Happy Darwin Day!

In addition to the usual reasons for us to celebrate Darwin Day, we have three more.

First, due to popular demand, Alan Gishlick's acclaimed critique of Icons of Evolution, "ICONS OF EVOLUTION? Why much of what Jonathan Wells writes about evolution is wrong," is now available in PDF format on the NCSE web site. You may download the critique as one file (broadband connection is recommended) or as individual chapters.

Understanding Evolution

The National Center for Science Education and the University of California Museum of Paleontology are pleased to announce that the Understanding Evolution web site is now live.

Project Steve Update

Today seems like a good day to bring you up to date on Project Steve, NCSE's parody of the long-standing antievolutionist tradition of amassing lists of PhDs who doubt evolution. Why today? Because December 26 is, as it happens, St. Stephen's Day.
