To say the least, evolution is a controversial topic. Everyone seems to have an opinion, but not many people seem very active in the debate or have a desire to dive into the topic, especially in my own state of New Jersey. Indeed, it’s sad to see misunderstandings of evolution persist even at the college level, so I have thus started a community-oriented, peer-edited blog for Rutgers undergraduate students to discuss evolution called Darwin’s Beagles. So far I’ve only gotten a response from one student, but hopefully that will soon change, leading to an active community of students writing about one of the grandest unifying ideas ever to arise in science. If you’re interested in commenting, contributing, or even joining, please visit the blog and get in touch with me at email@example.com.
