This episode of ID the Future features breaking news that could affect your freedom to present views that dissent from Darwin in a public place. CSC Associate Director John West explains in an interview with Anika Smith.

Free speech on evolution is under attack in California, where censors have expelled the intelligent design documentary, Darwin’s Dilemma, from the state science center.

Make your voice heard and stand up for free speech by e-mailing the California State Science Center at and calling 323-724-3623 to respectfully urge the Center to allow Darwin’s Dilemma to be screened, as they originally agreed.

Stay tuned to Evolution News & Views as this story develops.
