1. BBC News: Darwin Teaching Divides Opinion
Darwinism is a controversial topic, and many believe creation should be taught in the classroom. But why is that news?
2. ScienceDaily: Junk DNA Mechanism that Prevents Two Species from Reproducing Discovered
Has the U.S. government finally supported creationist research? Alas, no, but the results of a National Institutes of Health study fit squarely within the young-earth creation framework.
3. PhysOrg: Charles Darwin Really Did Have Advanced Ideas about the Origin of Life
Charles Darwin was convinced that lifes origin didnt involve a creator, even though there was no (and still is no) scientific explanation of how life could have begun without one.
4. The Times: Skull of Huge Sea Monster that Could Have Eaten T. rex Found in Dorset
Was the skull of an ancient Leviathan found in Dorset?
5. LiveScience: Sea Creatures Amazing Eyes Could Inspire New DVD Players
Genesis 1 makes no mention of DVD players, of course, and were certainly not saying God had such technology in mind when He designed sea life. But mantis shrimp have the most complex vision systems known to science that, reportedly, may one day inspire better DVD players.

“Darwinism is a controversial topic, and many believe creation should be taught in the classroom. But why is that news?”
So why do you keep posting this stuff in News/Activism?
Did you happen to catch the title? Did you happen to read the article you are drawing attention to?
“...a global majority believes Darwinism shouldnt have exclusive reign in science classes on lifes origin.”
Sorry pal, that’s news to both the Christian Right and the Temple of Darwin alike.
PS Get used to it.
Not news to anyone who has been living during the last century.
It seems to me that it isn't so much that you think that this isn't news, it's that you are afraid for this news to get out. Unfortunately for anti-science, Darwiniac, Luddites, history shows that progress in science cannot be stopped...even if said progress means overturning Darwood’s evo-religious creation myth.
Thanks for the ping!
