America’s favorite Intelligent Design cranks are at it again. Admittedly, this most recent release from the DI is somewhat tame. It is, however, just the latest in an incredibly long line of deliberate misinformation being spouted by the leading propagandists of modern creationism (read: Intelligent Design). Today, they’re unhappy about a paper published by members of the National Center for Science Education. However, a quick examination of past and current tactics of the Discovery Institute and its predecessors quickly illuminates why those seemingly innocuous words the DI is so up in arms about really are troubling.
