Schools of Thought

"As kids return to school this year, there is an undeniable excitement in the air," writes Tom Lutz, a visiting professor of critical studies, interim director of the MFA writing program at CalArts, and a professor of English at the University of Iowa, in an LA Times commentary.
No longer will they be stuck learning old-fashioned, intellectually bankrupt sciences such as physics, geology and evolution. They have the president's permission to learn "different schools of thought" about creation. Such as the fresh, modish sounding theory of "intelligent design." With the help of think tanks such as the Intelligent Design Network, the Access Research Network and the Discovery Institute, the theory that holds that an intelligent designer decided to give fish legs is finally beginning to get a fair airing in our classrooms.

Take a tour of intelligent designers who may, now, be coming to a school district near you -- from the ancient Ghanaian intelligent designer, Mangala, to the Babylonian designer by Marduk.
