Kevin Holtsberry points to this Columbus Dispatch article on a bill to require "that all theories on the origins of life be included in any school instructional program and that students be taught to think critically and understand why the various theories might create controversy." I'm not quite sure if Intelligent Design theory is ready for scholastic prime-time, but I'm leaning in that direction. As I understand it, ID argues that life is too complex to have happened accidentally, and has quite a few adherents among professional biologists. If there's enough professional air cover to make it a viable alternative, I'd be willing to back the Ohio bill.
