As a part of their campaign to undermine science education in the public schools, Christian fundamentalists frequently promote a book titled Of Pandas and People. These “intelligent design” proponents, creationists by another name, consistently try to induce state agencies and local school districts to adopt Pandas as a “supplemental text” for use in biology courses, and they insist that Pandas must be placed in school libraries and must be catalogued as a science book. In reality, however, Pandas is a religious tract. It is a slick repackaging of various doctrines that originated in “creation-science” — the religious pseudoscience by which fundamentalists pretend to show that the Holy Bible is a literal account of history and that there is no evolutionary connection between humans and other organisms.
