This is a very valuable read:

“A Teacher on the Front Line as Faith and Science Clash”

http://www.nytimes.com/2008/08…

Scientists and science teachers face enormous frustrations in battling the BS from the ID folks. Ken Miller, in his book “Only a Theory” puts it this way:

The United States has a big problem: although we maintain a strong scientific establishment, competitive with the rest of the world in many fields, we also have some of the most backwards proponents of superstitious nonsense in both our electorate and at the highest levels of politics. It is an embarrassment to host laboratories that are at the forefront of scientific research in the same country where presidential candidates are discussing whether Earth is really 6,000 years old as some Bible scholars say, or whether they believe in evolution.

Sound familiar?
