AP Cites Discovery Institute’s Opposition to Dover School Board Policy

Original Article

Discovery Institute’s opposition to the Dover School District policy on intelligent design has been highlighted in an Associated Press story by reporter Martha Raffaele:

“…the Seattle-based Discovery Institute, which supports scientists studying intelligent-design theory, opposes mandating it in schools because it is a relatively new concept, said John West, associate director of the institute’s Center for Science and Culture.

“We’re completely against anyone who says you should downgrade or limit the teaching of evolution,” West said.
