Dry Rot, Not Arson: The National Park Service and Science

I have a post up at the Panda’s Thumb by that title. The National Park Service may not have explicitly told its rangers and docents not to divulge the age of features in the Grand Canyon, but they do have policy guidelines that assert the use of creationism to demonstrate accurate knowledge of park features and review policies for books sold in NPS-affiliated bookstores that are supposed to only pass titles whose content is accurate, even though they continue to sell anti-science titles like Tom Vail’s “Grand Canyon: A Different View” and Vine DeLoria, Jr.’s “Red Earth, White Lies”. Check it out.
