Here is an excerpt from a feature documentary on "Creationism and Evolution" that was sparked by the case against the Dover, Pennsylvania School Board which attempted to implement a curriculum where creationism repackaged as "intelligent design" would be taught in the biology classroom. To cover this story, I attended several fundamentalist churches and found Pastor David Sproull and his wife, Yvette, who told me that they were homeschooling their five children because of the creationism issue. Yvette invited us to come to her kitchen classroom and film her teaching a biology lesson that uses the bible as its primary text.  Also included in the report is a refutal of the creationist position by a biologist and short interviews with Dover citizens at a school board meeting.
