Their argument just makes so much sense...

Hmm.

Opponents have said the policy was a tactic to teach intelligent design - a theory that life on earth is too complex to have developed through evolution, implying that a higher power must have had a hand in creation.


Yeesh, ixnay on the odgay!

Nice to see the writer of the article isn't fucking around:

Quote
Nearly all scientists dismiss it as a scientific theory, and critics say it's nothing more than religion masquerading as science.

This seems to derive from a new Law of ID which states that "anyone bad in history did it because they believed in evolution".

This of course explains Darwin kicking dogs as a little boy, as well.

In that case, Dembski won't have to run very far when it comes time to testify.

I'm in Texas, too (Corpus Christi). There was an article in yesterday's paper about Chris Comer's ouster and today there was an editorial that didn't have too many kind words about the Texas BOE and ID.

Dembski said he has no intention of testifying. Remember, he's not stupid, he just makes money off of those who are..

Could he be hauled in as a hostile witness?

Pro-science people should start a petition drive - "They're censoring William Dembski, the foremost theoretician on intelligent design! Let Bill testify!" and gather sigs from credulous people. See how that backfires on Bill.

It's time to take sockpuppetry to the streets, people, and place these dudes in uncomfortable positions, so that they have to try to explain themselves. :)

I'd pay $100 to see that. Man, I'd steal $100 to see that.

Careful BWE!  It's a slippery slope...the next thing you know, you'll be wanting to open a Secret ID Science Lab/Lair.
