Critical Analysis

The online World Magazine, which tries "to see the world as best we can the way the Bible depicts it" has published a cover story on the new textbook from the Seattle-based Discovery Institute. Explore Evolution: The Arguments for and Against Neo-Darwinism.

World Magazine's Mark Bergin writes that the Dover ruling highlights the effectiveness of the Discovery Institute's "critical analysis" approach. State school boards in Pennsylvania, South Carolina, New Mexico, and Minnesota along with local boards in Wisconsin and Louisiana have adopted science standards that encourage critical analysis of Darwinian theory, writes Bergin. "To date, not a single lawsuit has challenged such standards," he asserts.

"This is an approach that if I were a Darwinist I would be particularly frightened of," said John West, associate director of the Discovery Institute's Center for Science and Culture. "The policy that we've recommended turns out to be the precise common-ground approach we said it would be. It reduces the decibel level; you don't get sued; you get good education; and the Darwinists don't have a leg to stand on."
