RNCSE 31:3 now on-line


NCSE is pleased to announce the third issue of Reports of the National Center for Science Education in its new on-line format. The issue — volume 31, number 3 — features Phil Senter's "The Defeat of Flood Geology by Flood Geology," which concludes, "Flood Geology began in order to find support for YEC doctrine but ironically it has now produced an impressive body of evidence against it." For his regular People and Places column, Randy Moore discusses the career of a controversial defender of Lamarckian inheritance in "Paul Kammerer 1880-1926."

Plus a crop of reviews of books on science: Steven Dutch reviews Michael Leddra's Time Matters; Arthur G. Hunt reviews Michael Yarus's Life from an RNA World; Jonathan Marks reviews Jeremy Taylor's Not a Chimp; Anya Plutynski reviews Evolution: The Extended Synthesis, edited by Massimo Pigliucci and Gerd Müller; Pat Shipman reviews Brian Switek's Written in Stone; and Marvalee H. Wake reviews In the Light of Evolution: Essays from the Laboratory and Field, edited by Jonathan Losos.

All of these articles, features, and reviews are freely available in PDF form from http://reports.ncse.com. Members of NCSE will shortly be receiving in the mail the print supplement to Reports 31:3, which contains, in addition to summaries of the on-line material, news from the membership, a new column in which NCSE staffers offer personal reports on what they've been doing to defend the teaching of evolution, and more besides.
