The Evolution Project
Biblical Literalists and ID proponents often argue that evolutionary theory is of little use in practical, everyday science. Now, my Kansas blogging colleague, Josh Rosenau, who does the Thoughts From Kansas blog, and Rachel Robson have taken up that challenge with not one but two new blogs that examine the central role evolution plays in guiding research. They're taking a look at published scientific papers and cataloging the content based on whether evolution is central or peripheral to the development of that paper. It's an enormous undertaking that deserves our support. Frankly, I'm in awe. Take a look at what Josh and Rachel have done so far, here, at the Evolution Project, and here, at the Non-evolution Project.
