Only one member of the Writing Team (Robert Lattimer) expressed concern to the Department of Education about the draft biological evolution standards.
In memos to ODE officials Dr. Daniel Good (July 26, 2001) and Dr. Robert Bowers (Aug. 6, 2001), Dr. Lattimer recommended that formal presentations on the alternative theory of intelligent design be scheduled for the Writing Team and/or the Advisory Committee. Dr. Lattimer, an industrial chemist, was not a member of the original Grade 10 subgroup that wrote the first draft of the biological evolution standards. At his request, Lattimer was transferred to the Life Sciences subgroup in October. At the Oct. 16-18 and Nov. 29 - Dec. 1 Writing Team meetings, he participated in this subgroup. Over the next several months, numerous presentations on the evolution-design issue were made around the state by SEAO spokespersons Jody Sjogren (a zoologist and artist), Douglas Rudy (an information technology professional), and Robert Lattimer (an industrial research scientist). In a rather blatant rejection of the public comment process, six of seven subgroup members felt no need to make any changes to accommodate the input. (Subgroup member Robert Lattimer was the exception.) Thus the biological evolution standards remained essentially unchanged from the first draft. On May 12, 2002, the Cleveland Plain Dealer published a feature story on Dr. Robert Lattimer's role in the biological origins debate in Ohio. SEAO's position on these changes was stated by Robert Lattimer in a letter that appeared in the Akron Beacon Journal on Sept. 1, 2002: "Proponents of teach-the-controversy had nothing to do with the modest changes to the draft standards made in June.

Cleveland chemist Robert Lattimer, an ardent intelligent-design supporter who joined the team writing the new science standards, felt his views were being ignored.
"They were polite and listened, but they voted eight or nine to one against," Lattimer says. The writing team was supposed to be diverse, but ended up being "totally biased" in favor of teaching only evolution, he says. After complaining to state Department of Education staffers to no avail, Lattimer and others last November organized a group called Science Excellence for All Ohioans (SEAO) to campaign for giving intelligent design equal time in the classroom. "I worry that evolution is a springboard to atheism," says Robert Lattimer of SEAO, the group that is leading the intelligent design effort in the state. "You'll find a few design advocates who don't propose a supernatural designer," Lattimer says.

"I worry that evolution is a springboard to atheism," says Robert Lattimer of SEAO, the group that is leading the intelligent design effort in the state. SEAO is quick to point out that it does not advocate creationism in the classroom.Intelligent design doesn't take a theological stand. "It is pointless to try to inject creationist language into state-adopted science standards, since that battle has already been fought and won by the evolutionists," SEAO's literature acknowledges, referring to federal court rulings against teaching God-centered explanations for human origin. Besides, various Christian groups strongly disagree on the degree and nature of God's involvement in the creation of life."You'll find a few design advocates who don't propose a supernatural designer," Lattimer says."The majority think the designer is God, of course.But the theory doesn't say that." SEAO is a project of the American Family Association of Ohio, and its network of supporters includes other conservative Christian organizations such as Eagle Forum and the Christian Home Educators of Ohio. It's that strong Christian background presence that prompts the critics of intelligent design to label it "stealth creationism," a clever way of skirting the legal restrictions.
