Things that make you go "hmmmm" Part II

Back on October 20, we wrote a post titled "Things that make you go hmmmm" that asked why the Dover Area School District would choose the Thomas More Center, a self-described advocate for bringing religion (specifically Christianity) into the public square, if they believed intelligent design was not religious. Several people questioned whether this would be admissible in a court of law. Well, we have our answer: yes. It was brought up yesterday in cross-examination of Alan Bonsell. Here's a link to the York Daily Record's coverage of the issue: Plaintiffs ask: Why choose Thomas More?

I think the trial should be retitled Of Pandas and Perjury, because the entire School Board seems to have lied repeatedly in their depositions.

I knew the background of the attorneys was relevant! If they can attack the ACLU for its presumed motivations, why not the reverse? What's good for the goose...

And more perjury here.

And Judge Jones has taken notice.

I find it odd that that those who have the strongest religious principals at heart in this case are the ones lying in a most obvious way.

If they are certain of the defensibility of their position in introducing the ID debate to the science class, why do they suddenly act like they have no idea what this is all about?

The real strategy is clear: Introduce their religious views to a large number of unquestioning kids to create a movement toward their favored religious views. Too bad they have to keep redefining the theory to keep from getting it shot down. Its pathetic really. You can't pin these losers down.

Sadly, they are suceeding. When the opinion polls come in say 80% of the US public thinks we should teach the "controversy". Make up a controversy and then claim that the Science Mafia is keeping them from participating in the dialog.

No different than people eating "the war on drugs" or "the war on Iraq." People hear some self-proclaimed bozo say "it's so" and they go "Oh, Okay. It must be right & true, someone said so." Most people are flaming idiots. And you can be sure, when ID loses, the right will weep and cry "end times," "liberal Satan workers," and rally around the one lying on the stand. After all, if your not willing to lie for Jesus then you're part of the problem. "Oh, okay. That must be right & true, someone said so."
I hope he nails them for perjury, too. It make the celebration ever more sweeter than anticipated:-)

They know that when they get to whatever afterlife they believe in, the Intelligent Designer will forgive them because he is a forgiving Designer.
