CREATION/EVOLUTION NOW AVAILABLE ON-LINE
NCSE is pleased to announce that the complete run of Creation/Evolution is now available in PDF form on the NCSE website. Published from 1980 to 1996, Creation/Evolution was the leading source of information about and criticism of the creationist movement through that momentous period, which saw the rise and fall of attempts to require the teaching of “creation science” in the public schools as well as the beginnings of the “intelligent design” movement. Creation/Evolution was originally published by the American Humanist Association, under the editorship of Frederick Edwords; in 1991, it was acquired by NCSE, and John R. Cole became its editor. In 1997, Creation/Evolution was merged with NCSE Reports to produce NCSE’s current journal, Reports of the NCSE, edited by Andrew J. Petto.
Highlights of Creation/Evolution include Frank Awbrey’s “Yes, Virginia, There is a Creation Model” (issue 1), Laurie R. Godfrey’s analysis of the creationist movie Footprints in Stone (issue 6), Robert A. Moore’s “The Impossible Voyage of Noah’s Ark” (issue 11), Conrad Hyers’s “Genesis Knows Nothing of Scientific Creationism” (issue 12), a special issue on the Paluxy footprints (issue 15), Thomas McIver’s report on his field study in the Grand Canyon with a group of creationists (issue 20), John A. Moore’s “Is ‘Creation Science’ Scientific?” (issue 28), Bernard Ortiz de Montellano’s “Afrocentric Creationism” (issue 29), Eugenie C. Scott’s review of Phillip Johnson’s Darwin on Trial (issue 33), Taner Edis’s “Islamic Creationism in Turkey” (issue 34), and Robert T. Pennock’s “Naturalism, Creationism, and the Meaning of Life” (issue 39).
