The debate between religion and science is one that seems to get more and more involved as the discussions get more and more heated each year. Those who are involved in these issues are those who are extremely passionate about one side or the other. At Baylor University in Waco, Texas, there was a large upheaval of fundamentalist Christians against moderate Christians in regards to the "soul of the university".
That is why when the Theory of Intelligent Design was introduced into a class's curriculum and then removed, there was even more outrage, especially among the faculty and there were even headlines across the state about what had happened. People take these subjects very seriously, especially since this school is the nation's largest Baptist university.
