Divine Origins

"Brevard County School Board member Amy Kneessy wants the school district to adopt a biology textbook that includes passages on divine creation and intelligent design, going against a district committee's unanimous recommendation," according to James Dean of Florida Today.
"It's so innocuous," she said of the text. "To me, those two paragraphs belong there."

The Brevard County School Board is scheduled to vote Tuesday to adopt new elementary and secondary science textbooks.

The Florida Department of Education approved the textbook, "Biology: The Dynamics of Life," published by Glencoe/McGraw-Hill, which is available with or without two paragraphs headlined "divine origins." Two Florida districts, Broward and Pinellas, complained about the divine origines language and ultimately chose different textbooks.
