Evolution in Action
Fri, 25 Aug 2006 15:00:22 +0000
(image) What are the limits of evolution? 150 years after Darwin, very little experimental research has been done to answer that simple question. Many scientists simply take evolutionary change from species to species (macroevolution) for granted, given the small scale change within species (microevolution) that we see every day. However, actually testing
the limits of evolutionary change is a different animal (no pun intended).
This week we steal yet another show from the ID the Future
podcast. We'll hear Rob Crowther interview former Stanford Medical School and now University of Wisconsin-Superior microbiologist Dr. Ralph Seelke about evolutionary change in the 2000 generations and 1.5 trillion
bacteria cells he's observed.
You can check out Dr. Seelke's bio and home on the web here

The ACLU and the Famous Dover,PA Lawsuit over ID in Schools
Wed, 31 May 2006 16:35:24 +0000
(image) Recently in Dover, PA Judge E. John Jones ruled that intelligent design was unconstitutional in public schools. Prior to this decision, Dover citizens elected a new school board, which ran on a platform completely opposed to the intelligent design-friendly curriculum enacted by the former school board and which was the target of a lawsuit brought by a handful of local parents represented by attorneys from the ACLU and Americans United for the Separation of Church and State.
However, prior to Judge Jones' decision, faulty as it was
, the newly elected Dover school board was presented a legally-viable opportunity to nix the ID curriculum, potentially saving the residents of Dover $1,000,000 in legal fees from the ACLU and Americans United. Shockingly, the new Dover school board voted to keep the very policy they ran against. The result--a million bucks
in legal fees for the ACLU and Americans United.
Hear about this fascinating turn of events from Joe Manzari of the American Enterprise Institute and decide for yourself.
