South Carolina Board Slams Door on Creationism, ID

The South Carolina Board of Education ruled Wednesday that science teachers should continue using the same approach to teaching evolution in high school biology classes they have employed since 2000, reports Bill Robinson in The State.
The panel’s decision deals a blow — at least temporarily — to a percolating movement that calls for giving teachers and students more flexibility discussing other views about the origin of life. The alternatives include “creationism,” which draws inspiration from the Bible, and “intelligent design,” described by its chief proponent as “the theory for making sense of intelligent causes.”

The vote was 10-5.
