What If Stories, Part VII: Last but not Least

We always save the best for last, right?  Today at the blog of the National Center for Science Education, I make my case: How would the history of creationism be different without World War I?

For those who haven’t been keeping up, the NCSE has asked a handful of historians to give their best guesses.  How did World War I influence the development of creationism?  Of evolutionary theory?

We’ve read about creationism in Turkey and the Netherlands. We’ve read about the influence of the war on German intellectual life.  And about textbooks, the 1920s, and William Jennings Bryan.

So what did yours truly have to add to this discussion?  How do I think World War I changed the course of creation/evolution history?  You’ll have to read my post on the NCSE blog to find out.
