Mike Fair (R-State Sen SC) is leading this charge. He has even arranged for experts on this 'science' to speak to an EOC subcommittee, but what is real interesting is he tried to keep their names secret.
This is idiotic move, and it's timing makes it even more ironic. Today there is a story in the Vatican newspaper denouncing intelligent design.
The author, Fiorenzo Facchini, a professor of evolutionary biology at the University of Bologna, laid out the scientific rationale for Darwin's theory of evolution, saying that in the scientific world, biological evolution "represents the interpretative key of the history of life on Earth."
He lamented that certain American "creationists" had brought the debate back to the "dogmatic" 1800s, and said their arguments weren't science but ideology.
The Catholic church understands, the world scientific bodies understand, only the dogmatic theocrats seem to be confused, and this is unfortunately very predictable.
