On the Wednesday, the 13th, "Talk of the Nation", on NPR, had a program
about ID and the Ohio school system; the following is a synopsis found on
their website at
Michael J. Behe

David J. Haury
*Associate Professor, Science Education, Ohio State University
*Director, ERIC Clearinghouse for Science, Mathematics, and Environmental
*Elected Member, Ohio State Board of Education
*Professor of Marketing, University of Akron, OH
*Professor of History and Philosophy of Science, University of Notre Dame,
South Bend IN
Ohio public schools are battling over how to teach the different views of
the origin of life. Some educators believe the theory of "Intelligent
Design" deserves a place in the school curriculum because it's a science.
But critics say ID is not science at all. So, what is intelligent design?
Why do some educators find it so objectionable?
The discussion went pretty well, though perhaps a few too many Fundies
called in to "help" Behe out.
Those with Real Audio can hear it at the site cited.
