Ohio: Creationists Trot Out New Tactic

Reuters: Ohioans will be the focus group for a new tactic in the evolution wars. Creationists and intelligent design activists there -- thought to have been dealt a setback as late as last February -- now assert that schools should be required to discuss all controversial issues from creation to stem cell research and global warming.

The Ohio State Board of Education, according to Reuters, will consider a proposal next week that would oblige schools to teach critical thinking in all subjects considered controversial by the religious right.

The latest creationist gambit is on the agenda to be discussed Monday by a school board subcommittee in Columbus.
