A Montana legislator is preparing a bill to require the teaching of “intelligent design” along with evolution. On November 5, 2012, Clayton Fiscus (R-District 46), a new member of the Montana House of Representatives, asked for a bill to be drafted that would “[r]equire public schools to teach intelligent design along with evolution.” As such, the bill would presumably conflict with the decision in the 2005 case Kitzmiller v. Dover, in which requiring the public schools to teach “intelligent design” was held to be unconstitutional. The legislature convenes on January 7, 2013.

  1. With all of our problems we are dealing with, we need to put an end to this BS. It is one thing to be tolerant of the person raving at the town square, but changing curriculum like they did in Texas and trying to do here is impacting young people’s minds. In Egypt, they are protesting the overstepping of bounds by President Morsi for some of the overt religiious rhetoric in the quickly adopted constitution. This is by its nature the same thing. We need people to point this out. Good post, BTG
