Missouri Bill Redefines Science, Pushes Intelligent Design

"Each year, state legislatures play host to a variety of bills that would interfere with science education. Most of these are variations on a boilerplate intended to get supplementary materials into classrooms criticizing evolution and climate change (or to protect teachers who do). They generally don't mention creationism, but the clear intent is to sneak religious content into the science classrooms, as evidenced by previous bills introduced by the same lawmakers. Most of them die in the legislature (although the opponents of evolution have seen two successes)."*

How do you sneak creationism into classrooms? Why, you call it "intelligent design" and redefine science, of course! Rick Brattin is sponsoring a bill in Missouri aiming to do that, with unbelievable stipulations and redefinitions of words and terms. Ana Kasparian and John Iadarola (Host, TYT University) break it down.
