Battle Lines are Drawn

According to an article in the WaPo, natural history museums across the country are gearing up for the coming debate with ID by giving their tour guides crash courses in evolution.

Warren D. Allmon, director of the Paleontological Research Institution at the Museum of the Earth in Ithaca, developed a special workshop and a 13-page guidebook to help volunteers and staff members converse with visitors about the topics. "This is not a defensive reaction or an attempt to change anyone's mind," Allmon said. "It's just that we find most people are uninformed about evolution or have been given misinformation."

My own experience is that Allmon is correct. Hat Tip to R L. Macklin.
