Creationism and intelligent design don't belong in our science classes," said Board of Education Chairman Don McLeroy, who described himself as a creationist. "Anything taught in science has to have consensus in the science community – and intelligent design does not."
ID must be falling on hard times if self-described creationists are rejecting the teaching of it at the public school level.
