In this edition of ID The Future, Casey Luskin discusses a newly updated report on 22 recent textbooks and their treatment of evolution and intelligent design.

He discovered that many textbooks presented inaccurate or incomplete information about evolution and either omitted or undermined alternative viewpoints. Wells’ criteria is used again 11 years later. Tune in to find out what has changed.
