Default Re: Dover Intelligent Design case -- judge rules for plaintiffs

Some interesting aspects-

"It is ironic that several of these individuals, who so staunchly and proudly touted their religious convictions in public, would time and again lie to cover their tracks and disguise the real purpose behind the ID policy."

That wouldn't surprise anyone who participates in forums like this. Religiousity, by it's nature, impairs a persons moral judgement.

"To be sure, Darwin’s theory of evolution is imperfect. However, the fact that a scientific theory cannot yet render an explanation on every point should not be used as a pretext to thrust an untestable alternative hypothesis grounded in
religion into the science classroom or to misrepresent well-established scientific
"....we have addressed the
seminal question of whether ID is science. We have concluded that it is not, and..."

Encouraging to see that the 'prove me wrong' thinking that is required as a basis for a rational approach to aspects of religion was easily spotted by a non-scientific judge to be a non-scientific way of approaching a topic. Also, he noted the 'process' that differentiates science from pseudo science.
