On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin examines the double standard advocated by the evolution lobby in public schools. “Either a viewpoint is religious and unconstitutional to advocate as correct or critique as false in public schools, or it’s scientific and fair game for both advocacy and critique in public schools,” says Luskin.

What does this mean for evolution and intelligent design, and what does the case law say? Tune in to find out.

This podcast is excerpted from a law review article published in Liberty University Law Review. The article, “Zeal for Darwin’s House Consumes Them: How Supporters of Evolution Encourage Violations of the Establishment Clause,” is available here.
