News updates

First, as a followup on my Ray Comfort post, I somehow failed to adequately highlight the role which the National Center for Science Education played in responding to Comfort’s release.  Not only did they play a role in publicizing Comfort’s “borrowing” of his biography of Darwin (here), but the organization also played a huge role in the organized response to Comfort’s release.  For example, Eugenie Scott did a pretty strong critique of Comfort’s introduction and editing job as part of a US News online debate (here, and here).  It’s also worth noting here that the organization has also developed a website, available here, dedicated to highlighting problems with the text.  These sources are well worth checking out!

Also worth noting is the recent leak of Kent Hovind’s PhD dissertation.  PZ Myers discusses it on his blog Pharyngula, here.  Myers even includes a link where it is possible to download a copy of the thing in pdf form.

Also, if you’re interested in seeing some of the original manuscript pages from Darwin’s On the Origin of Species, you can now, at least digitally!  If you’re interested, check it out here.
