Funny Blurb

He's a bit from the Judge's opinion describing why Intelligent Design is just creationism in scientific clothing:

"Although proponents of [ID] occasionally suggest that the designer
could be a space alien or a time-traveling cell biologist, no serious alternative to
God as the designer has been proposed by members of [the ID community] , including
Defendants’ expert witnesses." p.25 (emphasis added)

Time-travelling cell biologists? I like that idea actually. For the text of the Judge's opinion, click on the "Dover Panda Trial" link on the side.

The reason that Intelligent Design should not be in biology classrooms is simple. Intelligent Design is not science. Evolution is the basis for modern biology, hence it is taught in biology. Intelligent Design is just a modernized version of DesCartes clockmaker prrof for the existance of god.

I agree. Also, even if the Intelligent Design people manage to convince people it is science, it is (at best) a fringe position rejected by almost all scientists. We don't teach fringe scientific positions in elementary and secondary schools.
