Bruce Chapman, president of the Discovery Institute in Seattle, has rightly corrected Bob Butler’s recent article about my film in which Mr. Butler wrote, “In Kansas, Texas and other states, ideologues work to elect school board members willing to introduce it (intelligent design) into the high school science curriculum.”
But let’s be clear. That’s Mr. Butler’s writing, not a quote from me. I am well aware that intelligent-design supporters are now very cautious. They have to be, after the Republican Bush-appointed judge in Dover, Pa., ruled last fall that intelligent design was not science.
Thus I applaud Mr. Chapman’s efforts to point this out. He is to be commended for making sure everyone knows that intelligent design should not be introduced into science classrooms.
