intelligent design, part 3

I previously wrote about 'intelligent design' first on 4 August, and then again on 22 October 2005.

Finally commonsense has prevailed - 'intelligent design' is not science.

You can read the 139 page decision handed down by Judge John E. Jones III here -
Kitzmiller, et al. v. Dover School District, et al. (opinion, document 342)

See also - 'Defending Science by Defining It' (Washington Post, 21 December 2005).

If parents or the Bush administration feel so threatened by the teaching of biology, particularly of evolutionary theory, and want young people to be exposed to religious doctrine, then by all means encourage them to go to church, or temple etc.

School and science classes are not the place to plant ideas about religion in young minds. Religious institutions are there for this reason.

If young people have faith and wish to believe in a religious doctrine, they will.

*As always, please check out Cooper and Camilla who always have interesting things to say.


Midweek, not long to go before the weekend and a few days break from work for my human. Woohoo!

I better go and tell him to give me a brush tonight. Must look my best for the vet.
