Presenting Evolution

With the recent <a href=/archives/2006/04/tiktaalik-makes.html>discovery of Tiktaalik</a>, and the paper in Science showing that yet another complex biological system <a href=>has now yielded</a> to an evolutionary explanation, evoution has been in the news quite a bit lately. That inevitably leads to thoughts about how best to present evolution to the public. I offer some thoughts on that subject in two entries over at EvolutionBlog: <a href=>Part One here</a> and <a href=>Part Two here</a>. Part One discusses Bill Nye’s appearance on the MSNBC show Countdown, and some of the press releases related to the Science paper. Part two discusses <a href=>this article</a>, from today’s New York Times, about the recent film Flock of Dodos. Enjoy!
