Intelligent Design in PA - I think not
"Section 1516.2. Teaching Theories on the Origin of Man and
13 Earth.--(a) In any public school instruction concerning the
14 theories of the origin of man and the earth which includes the
15 theory commonly known as evolution, a board of school directors
16 may include, as a portion of such instruction, the theory of
17 intelligent design. Upon approval of the board of school
18 directors, any teacher may use supporting evidence deemed
19 necessary for instruction on the theory of intelligent design."
" 1 (b) When providing supporting evidence on the theory of
2 intelligent design, no teacher in a public school may stress any
3 particular denominational, sectarian or religious belief.
4 (c) This section shall not be construed as being adverse to
5 any decision which has been rendered by an appellate court."
Yeah, sure. It is still unconstitutional, and will anyone do Cosmic Cows (english link this time), I think not. I think we're going to have good little stealth fundies prattling on about Apples and Gardens and Snakes (hey, it is 7 Rivers, not 7 Days... Hello!).
Well, not to my kids you won't. If Pa wants to provide for Comparative Religious Studies in publicly supported schools, fine by me. But, don't go around pretending this crap is science.
Clearly a day for Righteous Anger and Smiting of Things.
