RNCSE 32:6 now on-line


NCSE is pleased to announce that the latest issue of Reports of the National Center for Science Education is now available on-line. The issue — volume 32, number 6 — features Lorence G. Collins and Barbara J. Collins offering "More Geological Reasons Noah's Flood Did Not Happen." For his regular People and Places column, Randy Moore discusses the career of Miriam "Ma" Ferguson, who in the 1920s banned the use of biology textbooks that covered evolution. And James Shapiro responds to the review of his book by Laurence A. Moran.

Plus a host of reviews of books on the history and philosophy of biology: Robert Arp reviews the anthology Evolutionary Theory: Five Questions, Francesca Merlin reviews the anthology Transformations of Lamarckism, Andrew J. Petto reviews Carol Kaesuk Yoon's Naming Nature, Doren Recker reviews Elliott Sober's Did Darwin Write the Origin Backwards?; Brian Regal reviews Michael Ruse's Defining Darwin, and John S. Wilkins reviews the anthology The Cambridge Companion to Darwin (second edition).

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 32:6, which, in addition to summaries of the on-line material, contains news from the membership, a regular column in which NCSE staffers offer personal reports on what they've been doing to defend the teaching of evolution, a new regular column interviewing NCSE's favorite people, and more besides.
