Intelligent Design: Recent Developments

Madeleine Brand interviewed Ira Flatow yesterday regarding both a defeat of Intelligent Design in Pennsylvania as well as a victory in Kansas. Most disturbing:

[In Kansas,] the board of education actually re-wrote the definition of the word science so that they could meet this requirement [that the curriculum's standard must include Intelligent Design] Kansas, science is no longer just the search for the natural explanation for the world around us...You're not limited to nature in Kansas. Presumably that means that supernatural explanations can be used in this version of science.

Barbara Bradley Hagerty did a nice piece today on recent developments in the debate over Intelligent Design.
