← Evolution's Critics Shift Tactics With Schools

As I predicted from the start, the re-branding of creationism as "academic freedom" is working. This new strategy from the Discovery Institute is brilliant marketing, which is one thing that Christian fundamentalists excel at.

I would be surprised if these sorts of bills don't pass in all conservative red states (ie, the majority of the US).

The only hope left is that when ID is taught alongside evolution in public schools, it'll fail under the weight of the evidence -- if the biology teacher is not a stealth creationist, that is.

The US is clearly in a downward spiral, and this is just yet another example.
