'Not In Our Classrooms' - Intelligent Design

- one of the authors is set for the next TAM.

More than eighty years after the Scopes trial, creationism is alive and well. Through local school boards, sympathetic politicians, and well-funded organizations, a strong movement has developed to encourage the teaching of the latest incarnation of creationism--intelligent design--as a scientifically credible theory alongside evolution in science classes. Although intelligent design suffered a serious defeat in the recent Kitzmiller v. Dover trial, its proponents are bound to continue their assault on evolution education. Now, in Not in Our Classrooms, parents and teachers, as well as other concerned citizens, have a much-needed tool to use in the argument against teaching intelligent design as science.

Got to love Dr. Scott- she makes good points, her research is good, and she is a good communicator.

What is TAM???

HHMI did the holiday lectures over evolution last year. Educators can get free DVD copies of the lecture- pretty good stuff.

ID ain't science.
Evolution has been very very good to us

Thank you for the link! I'll definitely check that out.

The Amazing Meeting next January is just a JREF quasi-conference/social gathering (I say that IMHO, as there appears to be a growing population of people who are just going to Vegas at the time that it's held just to meet people outside of the speeches and not actually pay to attend the conference). You can see it on the JREF links on the main page.
