‘Intelligent Design’ can’t be taught as science, judge rules

It’s rare to find such a clearly reasoned and stated decision. Drop everything and read it for yourself:
Kitzmiller v. Dover Area School District, Court File: 04cv2688

With refreshing directness and citing the “breathtaking inanity of the Board’s decision, ” the court noted that “this case came to us as the result of the activism of an ill-informed faction on a school board, aided by a national public interest law firm eager to find a constitutional test case on ID, who in combination drove the Board to adopt an imprudent and ultimately unconstitutional policy.”

The court held:

We find that the secular purposes claimed by the Board amount to a pretext for the Board’s real purpose, which was to promote religion in the public school classroom, in violation of the Establishment Clause.

Put it in theology and philosophy classes where it belongs. Do schools have religion classes now? At Central, we had a great Comparative Religions class, almost as good as the Comparative Education class! But enough of this — not in science class!
