Evolution Symposium at UA

From today's BJ:

The debate over whether intelligent design should be introduced as an
alternative to evolution in public schools will take center stage at a panel
discussion from 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday at the University of Akron.

The event -- free and open to the public -- will be in Room 110 of Zook Hall and will include comments from John Green, director of UA's Bliss Institute of Applied Politics. He will discuss polling data related to the issue.

I've been wanting to blog about the evolution/creationism/ID issue. My interest was heightened by Bush saying that intelligent design should be taught in schools (which I mention mostly to conjure the myriad jokes that arise from mentioning "Bush" and "intelligent" in the same sentence.")

There is a good working group at Akron U; a couple of my friends who teach in the bio department are involved. And they have a website. Check it out. Between what they have up and the information on their linked websites, they cover most everything. Anything I would have to add would be superfluous.
