Bush to the Right of Vatican on Evolution
President Bush thinks Intelligent Design ought to be taught along side evolution in public high school science classes. The Vatican newspaper, however, says that intelligent design is not science. The Vatican says that teaching ID alongside evolution in school classrooms only creates confusion. The article lamented that certain American creationists had brought the debate back to the "dogmatic'' 1800s, and said their arguments weren't science but ideology.`This isn't how science is done,'' he wrote. ``If the model proposed by Darwin is deemed insufficient, one should look for another, but it's not correct from a methodological point of view to take oneself away from the scientific field pretending to do science.''
