Statement Opposing Missouri's HB911

More than 250 Missouri scientists and educators have released a statement opposing proposed legislation requiring equal time for "intelligent design" whenever evolution is taught. House Bill 911 in the Missouri General Assembly was filed earlier this year, and has been receiving attention within the state, although it has not yet moved beyond the introduction stage. The complete statement, along with a list of its signers from 14 institutions and links to the text of HB911 and to a statement from the Science Teachers of Missouri, also in opposition, are posted here .
