U.S. Legal System says 'No' to Intelligent Design

Once again common sense prevailed. Religious advocates who seek to subvert children to their particular brand of religion has for the time being, set back.

Judge Jones' findings addressed several important points in the debate between Intelligent Design advocates and the general science society. Briefly, the points are:
  • Intelligent Design is not science.
  • Intelligent Design is religious.
  • Intelligent Design should not be taught in science classes.
  • Intelligent Design is not an alternative to evolution.
I am elated at this ruling, and hope it will send a message to educational institutes in Australia, private, public or Catholic - that Intelligent Design should not be taught in science classes.

There is not doubt that this ruling will be contested by Intelligent Design's advocates. Yet equally there is no that the men and women who have fought preserve the integrity of State and Science will continue their fight.

Cheers,
Steve
