There is an interview over at Liberal Values with executive producer Paula Absell of the NOVA program Judgment Day: Intelligent Design on Trial that is quite interesting. Among other things, she says:
Recent polls tells us that 48 percent—almost half of all Americans—still question evolution and still believe that some kind of alternative should be taught in the public schools. What happens when half of the population doesn’t accept one of the most fundamental underpinnings of the sciences? Evolution is the absolute bedrock of the biological sciences. It’s essential to medical science, agriculture, biotechnology. And it’s critical to understanding the natural world around us.
The special comes on tonight at 8 on P.B.S.
