writes in to let us know that the Prof. Michael Reiss, who recently caused a storm
with comments about teaching creationism in schools, has resigned from his post as director of education
at the Royal Society in the UK. This news coincides with word out of the Anglican church that it is ready to apologize to Charles Darwin
, 150 years after it poured scorn on his theory of evolution by natural selection. "The Church of England will concede in a statement that it was over-defensive and over-emotional in dismissing Darwin's ideas. It will call 'anti-evolutionary fervor' an 'indictment' on the Church."
