Interesting strategy. Seems that Behe was not advised
of this? But that is not what they say, IF you really
read their statements carefully

They do not support states _mandating ID_ but they
surely want to teach the 'controversy', a typical
backdoor approach to ID, which, lacking positive
contributions has focused on the gaps in our knowledge
to hide its designers.

So in other words there is no science to be taught,
but it's not illegal to teach this? Despite the fact
that ID is scientifically vacuous and religiously

Could Denyse shed some light on this elusive
scientific theory of design the DI and ID proponents
are talking about?

No kidding. Although I am not sure why they hired
Luskin for this job :-) Check out
