ABSTRACT
Critics say it is creationism by stealth. Ohio's State Board of Education is attempting to include criticisms of evolutionary theory, which include ideas from advocates of intelligent design, in an official lesson plan for public schools. The United States National Academy of Sciences and the Ohio Academy of Science have asked the board to purge creationism from the plan. But on February 10, 2004, the plan was given preliminary approval with only two minor changes—deleting references to the book "Icons of Evolution" by intelligent-design advocate Jonathan Wells, and to a non-existent paper critical of evolution that was supposedly published in "Nature" in 1992.
