    GREENBELT, Md. (BP) -- Scientists recently found fossil evidence that dinosaurs and mammals once frolicked together across land at what's now the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland.

    Until now, scientists have only unearthed rodent-sized mammal prints from that period. Read More

    Müller did not espouse any creationist or design beliefs, but his presentation demonstrated that even the staunchest advocates of evolution are forced to admit the theory has many holes. The presentation was devastating "for anyone who wants to think that, on the great questions of biological origins, orthodox evolutionary theory has got it all figured out," Discovery Institute experts wrote on their organization's blog.

    by Dick Peterson, posted Monday, March 16, 2015 (2 years ago)

    ASHEVILLE, N.C. (BP) -- Lawmakers in four states tried this year to introduce academic freedom bills to protect teachers for questioning theories like Darwinism, shielding them from discipline, demotion or termination. But opponents killed the bills before they could get a fair hearing, raising concerns among educators who might not fully embrace the theory of evolution.

    "There are a number of incidents around the country where teachers have been threatened or fired," said Casey Luskin, research coordinator for the Discovery Institute's Center for Science & Culture. "They simply cited some of the problems with Darwinism." Read More
