Putting ID in its Place

"If any ideas evolved at a forum on intelligent design at Palisades High School on Tuesday, it was that public schools should offer philosophy classes where questions about human origins could be discussed," reports Pamela Batzel of The Philladelphia Intelligencer.

"Sharon Mendelson, one of about 80 people who attended the panel discussion, said the science classroom is the wrong place to discuss whether a higher intelligence has had a role in life. A philosophy class is the better venue, she said, winning applause from audience members at the forum sponsored by the high school's Students for Social Change club."

More evidence that people can make sensible decisions about science and intelligent design when its discussed outside the controlled environments preferred by the religious right.
