Lead: In the first decade of the twenty-first century, attempts by community groups to mandate the teaching in public schools of Intelligent Design alongside evolution seemed to introduce a new concept into education.

Intro.: A Moment in Time with Dan Roberts.

Content: In the end the debate over Intelligent Design is political, not scientific. The vast majority of scientists and teachers of science, including those with deep faith commitments, correctly perceive this not as a dispute among biologists or other scientific specialists. They see it correctly as an attempt by well-meaning, usually people of faith, to insert into education, mostly at the high school level and through local political pressure, teaching about an Intelligent Designer.
