IAP Statement on the Teaching of Evolution

Here is a story in the Guardian about the world’s science academies locking arms and digging in their heels to stem the tide of anti-evolution sentiment issuing from the unruly masses. Now if only evolution weren’t such a crock … Scientists call for better teaching on evolution http://education.guardian.co.uk/schools/story/0,,1802823,00.html Rebecca Smithers Thursday June 22, 2006 The Read More…

Darwinism Evolution

Pretending that Evolutionary Theory is Separable from Abiogenesis

Do traceable lines of descent exist that might ultimately permit characterization of the genomes of organisms basal to the clades for the highest categories? The answer to this question increasingly appears to be no. Recent work on genomic structures demonstrate that all living organisms are genetic composites: mosaics and chimeras composed of bits and pieces Read More…
