This week on ID The Future podcast, CSC associate director John West reports on the efforts of the Ohio State Board of Education to adopt a proposed “Framework for Teaching Controversial Issues.”

Darwinists are complaining — predictably — that the framework represents another nefarious plot “to orchestrate a religiously motivated attack on the theory of evolution.”

According to West, Darwinists’ shrill rhetoric has a lot more to do with their own hypocrisy and paranoia than it does with any legitimate fears.
