Behe Testifys for ID Bill in Pennsylvania House

Intelligent design proponent Michael Behe testified Monday in favor of a bill before the Pennsylvania House Subcommittee on Basic Education to allow local school boards to mandate that science lessons include intelligent design.

Behe was asked by Rep. P. Michael Sturla, a Lancaster Democrat, when intelligent design occured.

"Questions like, 'When did the designing take place? ... all are good questions," Behe responded. "We'd love to have answers for them, but they are separate questions from the question, 'Was this designed in the first place?'"

Representing the American Civil Liberties Union of Pennsylvania, legislative director Larry Frankel, said adding intelligent design to the curriculum would undermine Pennsylvania's the state's science standards.
