The Orleans Parish School Board has just voted to ban the teaching of Creationism in its schools.  Some are hailing the decision as a path toward serious science education.  Others are saying that Creationism is a legitimate and alternate form of science, citing concepts like Intelligent Design as a way to explain the gaps in Evolutionary Theory.

The move is against the backdrop of other controversial decisions in the state, like Governor Bobby Jindal agreeing to give $11 million dollars in taxpayer money to schools that teach creationism.
