President Bush gave his support for teaching "intelligent design" in schools alongside evolution.
The comments spurred an outpouring from both sides of the debate. Bush defended his position by saying students need to be exposed to different views. John Marburger, Bush's science adviser, tempered the debate by adding that intelligent design is not a scientific concept and that Bush's support is for a better understanding of social context to be taught in schools.
