ABSTRACT
The article presents information about the works of members of the journal "Reports of the National Center for Science Education" (RNCSE). At a special program for science teachers from South Africa, RNCSE members David Baum, Karen Mesmer and Andrew J. Petto teamed up to present an intensive four-day introduction to understanding and teaching evolution. RNCSE member Tim Beazley wrote to the San Diego Union-Tribune to explain the scientific theory of evolution. Beazley work makes testable predictions which have been confirmed by positive empirical evidence, as reported in many thousands of peer-reviewed articles in professional science journals. The article "Reductionism and holism, chance and selection, mechanism and mind," by Ursula Goodenough, published in the June 2005 issue of the journal "Zygon," focuses on the evolutionary theory. The article argues that despite its rich and deepening panoply of empirical support, the evolutionary theory continues to generate widespread concern. It is opined that some of this concern can be attributed to misunderstandings of the original concept.
