Sophistry: Piling It Higer

Rogers, Arkansas school board President Joye Kelley wants a district committee to review a set of supplemental materials that attack evolutionary theory, according to the Arkansas Democrat Gazette. Don Eckard, a Rogers dentist, wants the materials, most supplied by the Discovery Institute, included in the curriculum there in order to present "a balanced view of evolution."

Eckard, who describes himself as a Christian, doesn't want to teach creationism or intelligent design, oh no, he says, all he wants is for students to be exposed to "the scientific evidence that both supports and refutes evolution."
