Linking about evolution and other things

The posting of links does not constitute an endorsement of the sites linked, and not necessarily even agreement with the specific posts linked.

* A Mathematician's View of Evolution -- "I know a good many mathematicians, physicists and computer scientists who, like me, are appalled that Darwin's explanation for the development of life is so widely accepted in the life sciences."
* Institute for Creation Research -- A website devoted to creation research
* Listening to Young Atheists: Lessons for a Stronger Christianity -- "Christianity, when it is taken seriously, compels its adherents to engage the world, not retreat from it. "
* Mathematicians and Evolution -- "It seems to require many thousands, perhaps millions, of successive mutations to produce even the easiest complexity we see in life now. It appears, naively at least, that no matter how large the probability of a single mutation is, should it be even as great as one-half, you would get this probability raised to a millionth power, which is so very close to zero that the chances of such a chain seem to be practically non-existent."
* The Green Heron and Evolution -- "When the green heron catches the fish, it flips it to swallow the fish head first. This protects the heron's throat from the fish's fins and scales."
* The Mathematical Impossibility Of Evolution -- "...consider a very simple putative organism composed of only 200 integrated and functioning parts, and the problem of deriving that organism by this type of process."

On campus
* California College Forbids Passing Out Constitutions...On Constitution Day -- "In a stunning illustration of the attitude taken towards free speech by too many colleges across the United States, Modesto Junior College in California told a student that he could not pass out copies of the United States Constitution outside the student center on September 17, 2013—Constitution Day."
* DePaul University: Student Punished For Exposing Vandals of Pro-Life Display -- "Several students vandalized the display, removing flags and throwing them in the trash."
* Speech Code of the Month: Salem State University -- "While the intentions behind this policy are good, its overly broad language subjects large amounts of constitutionally protected speech and expression—including core political speech—to punishment."
