Lee Bowman and jdayer,
What is going on here is a religiously-backed advocacy group bypassing the scientific process and going right for our children. Lee, you're a big supporter of this approach. And your position is made all the more clear when you repeatedly use Casey Luskin, a lawyer with no background whatsoever in biology or evolution, as your "go-to" source for information.
This is no different than the "smoking is good for you" campaign that Big Tobacco ran in the 60s - subverting science in the eyes of the public (in this case, CHILDREN) to promote a special interest agenda.
Remove fundamentalist Christian creationist support, and "Intelligent Design" vanishes like a puff of cigarette smoke in a hurricane.
Bills like this allow religiously-minded teachers to say "we know how most things evolved, but we don't yet know how a few things could have evolved, so it could have been a 'Designer'". Without one definitive piece of evidence EVER that the supernatural exists, now it can enter the science classroom unchecked by the burden of proof.
As a parent, it is difficult for me to express how thoroughly I condemn the "go for the children" approach of you and the Discovery Institute, Lee.
