Intelligent debate

From an AP story "Bill would allow 'intelligent design' lessons in schools" (PA schools that is) published in today's Pocono Record

Experts on both sides of the debate over whether public schools should teach "intelligent design" as an alternative to evolution — a question already before a federal court — sparred in front of a state legislative panel Monday.

The House Subcommittee on Basic Education heard testimony on a bill that would allow local school boards to mandate that science lessons include intelligent design, a concept that holds the universe must have been created by an unspecified guiding force because it is so complex.

It is hard to believe that legislators are actually ingnorant enough or intimidated enough to sit down and talk seriously about this.

I need to scream. aaaaaaaargh.
