NCSE is pleased to announce the fifth issue of Reports of the National Center for Science Education in its new on-line format. The issue — volume 31, number 5 — features Lorence G. Collins and Barbara J. Collins's article "Pleistocene Continental Glaciers: A Single Ice Age Following a Genesis Flood or Multiple Ice Ages?" and David Morrison's feature "Science Denialism: Evolution and Climate Change," arguing, "There are some interesting common elements in these two cases of science denialism." For his regular People and Places column, Randy Moore discusses the impresario of the Scopes trial, George Rappleyea (1894-1966).
Plus a host of reviews of books on the history of science: J. David Archibald reviews Olivier Rieppel's Evolutionary Theory and the Creation Controversy; John W. Geissman reviews Doug Macdougall's Nature's Clocks; Sara B. Hoot reviews Sheila Ann Dean's Charles Darwin: After the Origin; Sherrie Lyons reviews Natural Selection & Beyond: The Intellectual Legacy of Alfred Russel Wallace, edited by Charles H. Smith and George Beccaloni; Aubrey Manning reviews Sean B. Carroll's Remarkable Creatures, and A. Bowdoin Van Riper reviews Sherrie Lynne Lyons's Species, Serpents, Spirits, and Skulls
All of these articles, features, and reviews are freely available in PDF form from http://reports.ncse.com. Members of NCSE will shortly be receiving in the mail the print supplement to Reports 31:5, which, in addition to summaries of the on-line material, contains news from the membership, a regular column in which NCSE staffers offer personal reports on what they've been doing to defend the teaching of evolution, a new regular column interviewing NCSE's favorite people — members of NCSE's board of directors, NCSE's Supporters, recipients of NCSE's Friend of Darwin award, and so on — and more besides.
