Dear Friends of NCSE,

Kenneth R. Miller is to receive the Stephen Jay Gould Prize.
Supplementary biology materials submitted for approval in Texas are
"laced with creationist arguments." A new poll offers insight on
public opinion on evolution and creationism globally. And no fewer
than forty-two Nobel-prize-winning scientists call for a repeal of
Louisiana's antievolution law.

Dear Friends of NCSE,

Good news from all over. Tennessee's "monkey bill" is on legislative
hold in the state senate. There are still seats available on the NCSE
expedition down the Grand Canyon. Tennessee's antievolution
legislation was criticized twice in the pages of the Knoxville News
Sentinel. Louisiana's antievolution law is the target of a repeal
effort -- led by a high school senior. And the first issue of Reports
of the National Center for Science Education in its new on-line format
is now available.

Dear Friends of NCSE,

Plutzer's Evolution, Creationism, and the Battle to Control America's
Classrooms, a spokesperson for the Alabama Department of Education
claims -- wrongly -- that creationism is included in the Alabama state
science standards, and the Indiana Department of Education offers its
voice for evolution.

Dear Friends of NCSE,

The antievolution legislation in Tennessee progresses. The eminent
evolutionary biologist Walter M. Fitch is dead. The opposition to the
antievolution legislation in Tennessee continues. The adjournment of
the Kentucky legislature means that the antievolution bill there is no
longer in play. And a reminder that there are still seats available on
the next NCSE excursion to the Grand Canyon.

A busy week, with a new "intelligent design" bill in Texas, threats
against a British imam over his acceptance of evolution, a new
antievolution bill in Florida, a discussion of "Evolution Abroad" in
Scientific American, and the apparent death of the second
antievolution bill in Oklahoma.

Dear Friends of NCSE,

Opposition to Tennessee's House Bill 368 is mounting. In the meantime,

evolution education, and NCSE presents a sample chapter from a new
biology textbook, Principles of Life.
