Two news items of some concern to those of us teaching science at Notre Dame:
First, some depressing news from the Indy Star: GOP lawmakers want schools to teach ‘intelligent design’. And Hoosiers are off on a race to the bottom with the fine people of Kansas.
But Cardinal Paul Poupard has been saying reasonable things about religion risking fundamentalism if it ignores science.
So some bad news, some good. At least we can sound off about idiotic curriculum proposals in the Indy Star forum.
