Group Creates Pro-Evolution Site

Seeking to quell a growing movement to teach creationism in U.S. schools, the National Academies has unveiled a new section of its website dedicated to teachers’ resources on evolution.
“The theory of evolution is one of science’s most robust theories, and the National Academies has long supported the position that evolution be taught as a central element in any science education program,” said a statement released by the organization Thursday.
The site was designed “to confront advocates of intelligent design, which is not a science,” according to National Academies spokesman Bill Kearney.
The site features academic papers supporting evolutionary theory and supplements for educators detailing how to teach evolution in the classroom.
