Bush endorses teaching ‘intelligent design’ theory in schools
BY RON HUTCHESON Knight Ridder Newspapers
WASHINGTON - (KRT) - President Bush waded into the debate over evolution and “intelligent design” Monday, saying schools should teach both theories on the creation and complexity of life.
Bush compared the current debate to earlier disputes over “creationism,” a related view that adheres more closely to biblical explanations. As governor of Texas, Bush said students should be exposed to both creationism and evolution.
On Monday the president said he favors the same approach for intelligent design “so people can understand what the debate is about.”

If George W. Bush endorses intelligent design, does it automatically have to forfeit the "intelligent" moniker? Not that ID deserves the term in the first place; creationism lite is far more accurate. Nevertheless, it's good to know the President ... Read More
