Dear Kansas City-area friends of NCSE,

I thought that you might like to know about a local screening of The
Revisionaries, a documentary about the battles over evolution
education at the Texas state board of education. The film will be
screened at 2:00 p.m. on January 27, at the Screenland Armour Theater,
408 Armour Road in North Kansas City. A discussion session with NCSE's
Joshua Rosenau, participating via Skype, will follow.

The event is sponsored by the Kansas City Atheist Coalition. A
donation is suggested; KCAC explains, "KCAC is asking for a $10 to $15
donation (or whatever you can afford). 75% of all donations will go to
the National Center for Science Education until we cover the $197 cost
of showing the documentary, after which all proceeds will go to the

A description of the film: "Once in a decade, the 15 members of the
Texas State Board of Education meet in Austin to revise the textbook
standards for five million schoolchildren. Led by Don McLeroy, a
Young-Earth Creationist and Evangelical Christian, the panel
implements standards that will ultimately go into effect in science
and history textbooks for schoolchildren across the nation. The
Revisionaries is a galvanizing peek behind the curtain at the
politicization of education."

While I have your attention, I thought that I'd also mention that a
new antievolution bill, House Bill 179, has just been introduced in
the Missouri House of Representatives. The bill is the same as HB 1276
in 2012 and HB 195 in 2011, and similar to HB 1651 in 2010 and HB 656
in 2009: not much changes! NCSE is monitoring the situation and
preparing to work with Missourians concerned about the integrity of
science education.
