Colby Awards Honor Two Books. In the spring of , the Dover, Pa. The entire science faculty had told the board they believed that ID was not science, that it was a form of creationism and that they did not want it introduced into the curriculum. The board, whose discussions had featured extensive references to God, creationism and the "myth of the church-state separation," paid them no attention.
They were determined to counter "atheistic" evolutionary theory with creationism. One school board member, Bill Buckingham, said, "This country wasn't founded on Muslim beliefs or evolution. Also looking for the perfect Supreme Court case was the Discovery Institute, "progenitor of the intelligent design movement and the seductively reasonable argument that schools should of course teach evolution, but that they should also 'teach the controversy,' " a controversy that the Institute mischaracterized as genuine scientific debate.
With a goal to transform society and science in 20 years, it had developed a plan called the "wedge strategy," and one major component was to get ID accepted as science, taught in schools, and with this Trojan horse, bring creationism into the classroom. There seems to be more than a little irony in a Christian organization using a lie to get at "the truth": "In public, the discussion would always be focused on problems with evolution and on evidence for an unnamed designer.

However, teachers and schools still avoid problems by using textbooks that give the theory only passing mention or by skipping the unit on evolution altogether.
Saying that Americans have a "notoriously poor grasp of both science and biblical scholarship," Humes dispels myths about evolutionary theory it is the opposite of random process, it is mischaracterized as survival of the fittest, it is not about the origin of life and discusses the questions that science can and cannot answer. Johnson, who originated the ID concept; Michael Behe, formulator of irreducible complexity, the silver bullet that supposedly would bring down evolutionary theory; Kenneth Miller, co-author of the textbook the board wants to counter, who is a Christian, and testifies for the plaintiffs; a Sunday school teacher called an atheist; a parent told he'd go to hell for supporting evolution; and God-fearing board members deriding parents with profanity and later, under oath, denying any discussion about God and creationism.
I learned things about him in this book I never knew before. So now I have to call him humble, too. No one can read these pages and continue to live a narrow, anxious, self-absorbed life. Those in the cultural community who have ever been concerned about the arts and political activism should have all their fears assuaged by this wonderful documentation.
Despite being an accomplished actor and gaining notoriety as a human rights activist, he remains humble and focused.
This book must be read by all of those who profess to be committed to First Amendment rights and human rights, but do not have the courage of their convictions to stand up and speak truth to power. We can all do better. Thank you, Mike. Whether Latin America, the Middle East, the death penalty, or a whole host of other human rights issues, Mike Farrell has confronted government abuse with courage, dedication, and tenacity.
