God in Science Class

photoA Texas Tech student filed a complaint against a biology professor who refuses to write grad school recommendations for students who can't truthfully affirm that evolution is at the core of science.

The case highlights a growing tide of attempts by fundamentalist Christian groups to introduce the teaching of religious theories as alternatives to evolution.

Guests:

Dr. Ted Reid, professor of opthamology, visual science, cell biology, and biochemsitry at Texas Tech Medical School

Eugenie Scott, executive director of the National Center for Science Education

Kelly Shackelford, chief counsel of the Liberty Legal Institute
