Deadline Passes for Nevada ID Initiative

The Tuesday deadline for turning in signatures has now passed for supporters of the Nevada "Truth in Science" initiative. As we reported last week, intelligent design activists dropped efforts to qualify the initiative for the ballot some time ago.

According to KLASTV, Las Vegas masonry contractor Steve Brown, the driving force behind the initiative, said he did not think his "Truth in Science" proposal would be passed by voters even if it were on the ballot.

The ID measure, would have required teachers to instruct students that there are questions about evolution, was viewed by opponents as an opening to teach intelligent design.

Guess that groundswell of public support for ID just wasn't there.
