Turkey bans evolution books
I once heard that Turkey was one of the more liberal Muslim countries. That must not be true anymore.
The Scientific and Technical Research Council of Turkey (TÜBİTAK) has put a stop to the publication and sale of all books in its archives that support the theory of evolution, daily Radikal has reported.
Some solid names are included in the list of books no longer available.
Titles by Richard Dawkins, Alan Moorehead, Stephen Jay Gould, Richard Levontin and James Watson are all included in the list of books that will no longer be available to Turkish readers.
It’s a very sad day.
