Broward County: Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea
Broward County science teachers were forced to choose between a biology text that doesn't mention evolution and one that says:
Many of the world's major religions teach that life was created on Earth by a supreme being. A variation of this belief is that organisms are too complex to have developed only by evolution. Instead, some people believe that the complex structures and processes of life could not have formed without some guiding intelligence.
Rather than teach intelligent design, the teachers chose the text that leaves out evolution. Why were they forced to make that decision?
