Intelligent Design Theorists: Do As I Say, Not As I Do

At the science standards hearings and in countless letters to the editor, ID supporters never tire of telling everyone how science supresses the evidence of design. They wax indignant about censorhip and bias. Let's just be fair, they cry.
What do they do when they have the power to do what they want -- as in Kansas? Why they hold secret meetings that exclude moderate members of the school board. They set up a science standards hearing committee that excludes moderates and dumps overboard the longstanding curriculum development process in the state. Soon, they'll be holding hearings designed to cut out the the science standards writing committee -- and the public -- relying instead on "focused hearings from experts." You can be sure these experts will hail in disproportionate numbers, not from science laboratories around the country, but the Discovery Institute.
