Human Evolution

http://www.talkorigins.org - This is a huge site dealing with all aspects of anthropology. Most discussions center on the creation/evolution controversy, but other topics of discussion include the origin of life, geology, biology, catastrophism, cosmology, and theology.

• "The chasm between what scientists do and what the public understands about science widens daily. A new Web site, produced by a group of top paleontologists, aims to provide a bridge across that chasm to the confusing world of human origins and offer a clear view of how science develops its notions about our beginnings... http://www.becominghuman.org...." (Tim Friend, 2001, Site digs at the roots of the human family tree. USAToday, April 16, 2001, page 6D.)
