Target Audience

"I've studied every scientific journal and there's no proof of evolution anywhere," says Ed Rockland. "In order to be scientific, it must be testable, supportable and disprovable."

Like the Bible.

Despite the testimony of Rockland and other widely read citizens, the Ventura County Board of Education voted 3-1 last Thursday to approve Pearson Prentice Hall's "Focus on California Life Science" for use in science classrooms there.

A Discovery Institute video video presentation, which followed the board's public comment period, doubts that "high school students have the ability to critically analyze such subjects as evolution in an educational format," according to Darleen Principe of the Simi Valley Acorn.

Could that be why high school students have become the designated target audience for Discovery's intelligent design sales force?
