Criticism of Darwin's Theories OK In Ohio

And, scientifically speaking, it's OK by me, too.
The Ohio State Board of Education voted 13-5 yesterday to approve a model lesson plan that takes a critical look at Darwinian evolution.

The 10th-grade biology lesson plan, called a "Critical Analysis of Evolution," was created to implement a benchmark in the state science standards that requires students to be able to "Describe how scientists continue to investigate and critically analyze aspects of evolutionary theory."
Link.

All this sounds OK - science exists to be critically examined. Although when someone uses the illogical phrase "scientific dogmatism" my ears perk up - and my heart sinks. And when the "related offer" links at the bottom of WorldNetDaily are Tornado in A Junkyard: The Relentless Myth of Darwinism

and The Case Against Darwin ... but not Charles Darwin's, "Origin of the Species" or the much more even-handed approach (duh) of Daniel C. Dennett's, "Darwin's Dangerous Idea: Evolution and the Meanings of Life" you have to move on the side of - well maybe this ain't so hot after all.

Whenever I read an article like this I'm tempted to say people who take a stand against the Theory of Evolution, do so because they have not benefited from it.
