"The intellectual underpinnings of the latest assault on Darwin's theory come not from Bible-wielding Funamentalists but from well-funded think tanks."

In my view, what they're really interested in is dumbing down an entire generation of kids into believing anything they want them to believe. The message is not, as they would say "teach the controversy," it's "don't trust science," so that next time we come around and tell you that global warming doesn't exist or pollution ain't so bad or "we need to thin" you'll be much more willing to accept what we have to say.
