The Onion October 2005

There’s another of those scary science stories in today’s NYTimes: Split Outcome in Texas Battle in Teaching Evolution.

The real scary part is such ignorance is still alive and kicking, and not just in Texas.

And when it comes to textbooks – as Texas goes, there goes the nation.

Meanwhile next month we celebrate the bicentenary of Charles Darwin’s birth.

I’ve been dipping into some of Darwins letters and notebooks describing his earliest memories, his experiences aboard the Beagle and his adventures in South America

They are all available here The Complete Works of Charles Darwin.

Fascinating.
