Misperceptions about the state of the art in evolution research

I intended to post an article on evolution 2 weeks ago, on Charles Darwin's birthday, to commemorate his life's work, which is perhaps the single most important intellectual achievement in the scientific era.

I would like to bring to your attention this great article which summarizes a moderated discussion from the recent meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science on the current status of evolution research, and how to deal with the common misconceptions about the evolution -under the pressure of ever strengthening fundamentalist disinformation campaigns.

Also for your information, this website has a complete online version of Darwin's works.
