The Evolving Religious Assault on Evolution: Lawrence Lerner

Features an interview with Prof. Lawrence Lerner, co-author of the Fordham Institute’s report grading science and evolution standards in the United States state-by-state. (Hint: Wisconsin was one of many states to flunk.) Timely developments on evolution are reported. Homage is paid to the 86th anniversary of Women’s Equality Day (Aug. 26, 1920) and the freethinking women who sparked the suffrage movement. For comic relief, enjoy Joe Hill’s classic song, The Preacher and the Slave,” performed memorably by Kristin Lems and Dan Barker, from the CD, “Friendly Neighborhood Atheist.” (MP3, 48 min, 22 MB)”
