Palm Beach County Rejects ID

Chris Kahn of the Sun Sentinel reports that , "When [the Palm Beach County School District, RSR] chooses a new Biology 1 text, the district will avoid picking the one state-approved book that describes the concept of intelligent design.

"We talk about things we can measure, things we can observe," said district science curriculum supervisor Fred Barch. "We don't get into other explanations that involve religion."
The book, Biology: The Dynamics of Life, includes this passage: "Many of the world's major religions teach that life was created on Earth by a supreme being. The followers of these religions believe that life could only have arisen through the direct action of a divine force ... Some people believe that the complex structures and processes of life could not have formed without some guiding intelligence."
