Added "An Open Letter to Michael Novak" by Michael Drake to the Agora.
"Michael Novak recently penned a curious piece for National Review Online, The Atheist-Civil Liberty Union, in which he speaks out against what he claims is an atheist agenda to ban religion from all of public life. The most charitable way to read his article, as I saw it, was as a parody of establishmentarian rhetoric." - Michael Drake

Added "Book Review of 'Darwinian Natural Right: The Biological Ethics of Human Nature by Larry Arnhart'" by Evan Fales

It has become something of a leitmotif among evangelical apologetes to argue that morality can have no objective foundation if there is no God. Such is the argument of Arnhart's book Darwinian Natural Right, which Fales carefully reviews.

Added "Creationism to Universal Darwinism: Evolution and Religion" by Taner Edis, the featured article for July, to the Kiosk [Note: Edis is the author of The Ghost in the Universe: God in Light of Modern Science, our Book of the Month selection for July.]
Today--more than a century after Darwin convinced biologists that life had evolved, polls nevertheless indicate that ~45% of Americans believe in creationism of the young-earth variety and another ~45% believe in progressive evolution guided by divine force. With an overview as to where it has been and where it is going, Edis brings us up to date on the ongoing controversy over creation and evolution.
