AAAS Releases Statement on Intelligent Design

The board of directors of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) released a "Resolution on Intelligent Design Theory" that states, in part, that

Whereas, the ID movement has failed to offer credible scientific evidence to support their claim that ID undermines the current scientifically accepted theory of evolution;

Whereas the ID movement has not proposed a scientific means of testing its claims;

Therefore Be It Resolved that the lack of scientific warrant for so-called "intelligent design theory" makes it improper to include as a part of science education.

The AAAS also called for "citizens across the nation to oppose the establishment of policies that would permit the teaching of 'intelligent design theory' as a part of the science curricula of the public schools."
