Robert Weitzel: Theory puts a serpent in the garden of education
|The Wedge Strategy's focus and funding are not on the research necessary to cause a shift in the prevailing scientific paradigm. Rather, they are aimed at convincing an uninformed public that intelligent design creationism deserves equal consideration as a "scientific theory." This is the "wedge" that intelligent design creationists hope will split the authority of the First Amendment and allow the Christian creation story to substitute for science in our country's public schools. |
The word is getting out, but rather slowly.
