The New Mexico Board of Education votes 14-1 against teaching "alternatives" to evolution in public school science classes. Until now, science teachers in New Mexico have had to give equal weight to all "theories."

Marshall Berman, a member of the state board of education, has been working for the past three years to make this change.

"This gives teachers the political cover they need to teach evolution. ...

If the assumption is there are two sides, I question the assumption. The sense is of creationism as a scientific theory, that it exists as a reliable principle. But it is not based on science."
