Judson on teaching evolution19 Aug 2008
Olivia Judson editorializes on the value of teaching evolution:
[A] failure to consider the evolution of other species may result in a failure of our efforts to preserve them. And, perhaps, to preserve ourselves from diseases, pests and food shortages. In short, evolution is far from being a remote and abstract subject. A failure to teach it may leave us unprepared for the challenges ahead.
