Middle East Edition of National Geographic, About the War on Science, Removes Evolution Example from Cover

Remember the March, 2015 issue of National Geographic? It was a fairly popular one focusing on the war on science:

The cover highlighted a few of the “battles” in this war:

Climate Change does not exist

Evolution never happened

The Moon Landing was fake

Vaccinations can lead to autism

Genetically Modified Food is evil

Interestingly enough, they revised the cover for the Middle East edition of the magazine:

Climate Change does not exist

The Moon Landing was fake

Vaccinations can lead to autism

Genetically Modified Food is evil

The evolution bit was removed.

I’m not sure why that happened — or if the article itself has any changes to it as a result — but it’s a disturbing thing to see for an area where acceptance of evolution is a serious problem.
