Politics, Not Science

Politics, Not Science

HARRISBURG (AP) - A leading proponent of "intelligent design" acknowledges that major scientific organizations oppose his ideas, but says their criticisms aren't scientifically based. Lehigh University microbiologist Michael Behe is to return for a third day of testimony today on behalf of York County’s Dover Area School District, which wants students to be told about the concept as an alternative to evolution. The school district is being sued by people who say intelligent design is a veiled form of biblical creationism that doesn't belong in public schools. Behe says opposition from groups like the American Association for the Advancement of Science are based in politics, not science.
