The "Coldwater Media" video of Jonathan Wells's "Icons of Evolution" premiered on 2002/05/10, and since has been reported to have aired on several television stations in Ohio.  This deployment seems to be obviously political in nature, with an aim to influence voters, who in turn would influence the Board of Education to include "intelligent design" in school science standards, or at the least officially single out evolutionary biology as "controversial" and require the teaching of "evidence against" evolution.  These two ways of stating things are pretty much synonymous for "intelligent design" advocates.

Anyone with information on specific times, locales, and dates when the "Icons" video has been aired is requested to add to
this thread in the "Intelligent Design News" forum.

In KC, the local ID people rented a movie theater and "premiered" another video, "Unlocking the Mystery of Life" on 5/16. This one is offered on the ARN website also. Nobody I know went to see it. Apparently, it has some neato special effects taking you inside the amazing complexities of a cell, showing the amazingly complex mechanisms of the bacterial flagellum, etc. Are these the only two examples of "IC" they can think of?  ???
