Evidence for Evolution

In the back of my mind, I'm always pondering how we can teach evolution in such a way that deeply religious students are engaged, but not threatened. I don't know if it's possible, but I know that it's important that we struggle with the issue, especially due to my experiences of growing up in Christian fundamentalism. I experienced a lot of conflict there, as did many of my friends.

I'm trying to find time to build on previous research I've done on this topic with David Jackson of UGA, and I'm just now trying to get a handle on the evidence for evolution. Bob Angus of UAB got my started with a great set of web-sites he had collected, and one of them might be really interesting to many of you. It's resources for evolution from the National Academies, and almost all of the resources are open-books. You can read them for free! You can find the site at the following URL:
