Science academies working in concert?


The world’s scientific community united yesterday to launch one of the strongest attacks yet on creationism, warning that the origins of life were being “concealed, denied or confused”.

The national science academies of 67 countries warned parents and teachers to ensure that they did not undermine the teaching of evolution or allow children to be taught that the world was created in six days.

So far, though, I’ve only found this one source that mentions it, and neither the National Academies or Royal Society web pages make a peep about it. It’s good news if it is confirmed, though!

This is why I should read the other science blogs before posting: Afarensis has the official statement.
