We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
On the evolutionists' side is a legal team put together by the American Civil Liberties Union and Americans United for Separation of Church and State. These groups want to put intelligent design itself on trial and discredit it so thoroughly that no other school board would dare authorize teaching it.
So here come the religion-haters and the Bible-phobics. Isn't the real issue, though, as it was in Scopes I, whether a local school board can make its own decisions?
The strident assault on "Intelligent Design" is not about religion or scientific method or any of the other red herrings bandied about. It is about anointing the current academic establishment as the arbiter of public debate. This trial is not Scopes II, it is Galileo Galilei II. http://www.infoplease.com/ce6/people/A0858327.html Galileo and the Church.
