The Kansas Board of Education, voting 6-4, has approved a science curriculum for public schools which incorporates information about the “intelligent design” arguments on human origins and highlights problems with contemporary evolutionary theory. This is bound to create a massive uproar, of course; I won’t dive into any of the issues, here, but I thought it deserved a mention.
If you are unfamiliar with the intelligent design argument or have only heard the way it is presented in the news, you owe it to yourself to read Michael Behe’s book Darwin’s Black Box. Whatever the debate, whatever side you’re on, you should be familiar with the best argument for each side’s claims before commenting, yourself, and Behe’s book presents about the best explication of intelligent design around.
