Selected content from volume 26, number 6, of Reports of the National Center for Science Education is now available on NCSE's website, including Jim Lippard's account of the 2005 schism of the young-earth creationist ministry Answers in Genesis, Nick Matzke's report about the latest creationist textbook to come down the pike, Kevin Padian's review of Donald Prothero's After the Dinosaurs: The Age of Mammals, Lawrence S. Lerner's review of Darwin's Nemesis (a festschrift for the godfather of "intelligent design" creationism), and Carrie Sager's droll review of Ray Comfort and Kirk Cameron's creationist trivia game -- "a Ken Ham-endorsed, William Dembski-approved cornucopia of bad science and fundamentalist propaganda," she writes.
