Addressing a "Misunderstanding" About Academic Freedom with Discovering Intelligent Design

Now you can see exactly how we think ID may legitimately and usefully be taught -- in "home schools and private schools rather than public schools." David Klinghoffer http://www.discovery.org/p/209

Primer on avoidance mechanisms used by the ultra-Orthodox

Panda's Thumb - Wed, 2015-05-20 05:48
School’s out, and I discovered a new website, TheTorah.com, which appears to be a project of a group of Modern Orthodox Jews to promulgate their acceptance of higher criticism (also called historical criticism). In other words, these are scholars who practice Orthodox Judaism but are not Biblical literalists. Their website proclaims a need for a “historical and contextual approach” to Torah study. Amen, and good luck to them! Most of the articles on the Website... Matt Young http://www.mines.edu/~mmyoung

Evolutionary educational resources in the U.S.

Panda's Thumb - Wed, 2015-05-20 05:48
The majority of U.S. medical schools do not require evolutionary biology as a prerequisite for acceptance and do not offer courses dedicated to the subject. But as we talked about last time, adopting an evolutionary perspective on medical issues can potentially give new insights into disease treatment, prevention, and diagnosis. Where do we and should we begin to teach this kind of thinking? What resources are available to teachers and students to learn about... Emily Thompson http://cartwrig.ht/people/

Anti-vaxxers are more dangerous than you thought

Panda's Thumb - Wed, 2015-05-20 05:48
“Measles vaccine protects against other deadly diseases,” proclaims an article in ScienceInsider. In reality, the protection is indirect: Getting measles disposes you to getting other potentially fatal diseases over the next several years. Evidently, measles, unlike, for example, whooping cough, not only weakens your immune system but also makes it “forget,” so you may even contract a disease that you already had and thought you were immune to. (As an aside, though it was supposedly... Matt Young http://www.mines.edu/~mmyoung
