Difficult to Decipher

From an informative survey of attitudes of school board members about teaching creationism and intelligent design in San Diego and surrounding communities by Pat Sherman in the San Diego CityBEAT:
...the rancorous issue is a long way from winding up on their packed agendas. A random sampling of board members’ attitudes on intelligent design garnered responses from candid to cagey, with a few as difficult to decipher as the genetic code of ostrich DNA. Most said they would defer to California education standards for the teaching of natural science, which allows for evolution-only education. In September, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Jack O’Connell defended California’s standards from efforts to inject intelligent design into science curricula, saying intelligent design would be “a blow to the integrity of education in California… because religious beliefs are based on faith, and are not subject to scientific test and refutation.”

Well worth reading...
