'Intelligent Design' Trial Wraps Up
An AP/CBS news article, via CBS News, reports that:
A lawyer for eight families urged a federal judge on Friday to overturn a policy that requires the discussion of "intelligent design" in biology classes, saying it improperly promotes religion in schools.
A lawyer for the school board defended the policy, explaining that it was intended to call attention to a new "science movement."
The families' attorney, Eric Rothschild, said the concept promotes the Bible's view of creation with its belief that evolution cannot fully explain the origin of life or the emergence of highly complex life forms.
