The ID decision

Steve Verdon describes Waterloo in Dover (Outside the Beltway 05dc21) and provides a link to the decision about Intelligent Design in the science classroom.

So, we have a decision that debunks the “academic freedom” argument, the “teach the controversy argument”, that “ID is science” argument, and leaves proponents of ID, creationism and their supporters with very little left to stand on.

The argument regarding ID presents the false view that evolution and the Bible are mutually exclusionary. There is also the misdirection involved in the definition and meaning of science education. This decision seems to describe these fallacies in argument but the continued tenure of the effort bespeaks a dellusion that will likely not rest with this trial decision.
