MUNCIE, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) - Ball State University has appointed a review panel to investigate allegations that an honors course, exploring the nature of the universe, is religion disguised as science.

The Freedom from Religion Foundation prompted the review with a letter it sent last month to Ball State President JoAnn Gora urging her to investigate the allegations.

The class in question is an honors class called Boundaries of Science. The Freedom from Religion Foundation maintains the class teaches creationism rather than science.

A panel of four faculty members will evaluate the course.
