"Of People and Pandas" Errata Grows
John Sullivan of Knight Ridder reports from Harrisburg that:
In a pretrial hearing here in federal court, the plaintiff's attorneys said an early draft of the textbook [Of Panda's and People -- RSR] on intelligent design - the theory that the universe is too complex to have developed without some purposeful designer - had used the term "creation."
The lawyers also produced a letter written by the book's publisher, Jon Buell, that said intelligent design could serve as an alternative to evolution that would alleviate the deep hostility toward Christian views of how the world came to be.
