Ron Numbers on humans, dinosaurs, and Sarah Palin
There is a whole chapter in the Rough Guide to Evolution on the religious opposition to the theory of evolution by natural selection. I was very fortunate to have the chapter looked over by Ron Numbers, who probably ranks as number one world expert on creationism and by Lauri Lebo, a journalist who covered the Dover trial. Both provided helpful feedback and reassurance that I had my facts straight (but usual caveat: any mistakes remain my responsibility, not theirs).
