Publisher's Summary

A subcommittee of the Kansas Board of Education holds hearings on whether the state's science curriculum should permit alternate theories to be taught alongside evolution. During the first three days of hearings, proponents of intelligent design present their views. They are represented by a retired lawyer, John Calvert, who heads the Intelligent Design Network of Shawnee Mission, Kansas. The witnesses are questioned by the members of the subcommittee and by attorney Pedro Irigonegaray, who supports the teaching of evolution.

A must listen . . .

No matter what your belief system is, the testimonies heard throughout these four days is worth listening to! I only began listening because this could pertain to a project I'm working on but soon was captured by the differing perspectives the legislature invited to the table. It was one of the most informative days I've spent in some time. I cannot recommend taking time to listen to them arduously enough! Just commit to listening for one hour and I promise you will be hooked!!!

These hearings are eye opening in that they expose the biased media coverage which represented these hearings as "Science against Religion".

Here are credible, highly qualified scientists who clearly indicate that:
1) There is signficant contraversy regarding Darwinian/Macro evolution
2) There exist singificant misrepresentations about the evidence supporting Darwinian/Macro evolution.
- Jonathan Wells and John Sanford are especially significant in their expert testimony.
- The more we learn about DNA and genetics, the less likely Darwinian/Macro evolution looks
- The distinction between Micro and Macro evolution is extremely important in understanding this issue
3) There is clear discrimination against those scientists and teachers who express their disagreement with teaching Darwinian/macro evolution as a foregone conclusion.

It is seriously worth listening too.
