For June 19, 2007. Twenty years ago today, the Supreme Court handed down a decision in the case Edwards v. Aguillard. This case is one of many court cases in the contentious issue of what explanation for the origins of life and human beings should be taught in schools. I take a look at the Edwards case, the influence of religious conservatives on American political life, and creationism versus evolution.
Today's music is from "Reasontanker," by Father Rock. Our theme music is composed and performed by Marc Rose.
