Things that make you go "hmmmm" Part III

Not to belabor the point, but the New York Times published an interesting article on Friday (11/4) about the Thomas More Law Center's attempts to generate a case on intelligent design...

"In May 2000, Robert Muise, one of the [Thomas More] lawyers, traveled to Charleston, W.Va., to persuade the school board there to buy the intelligent design textbook "Of Pandas and People" and teach it in science class."

Mr. Muise told the board in Charleston that it would undoubtedly be sued if the district taught intelligent design, but that the center would mount a defense at no cost."

And, it seems that they have plans to take their ID show on the road. We will stay tuned...

The ONLY testimony listed on the TMLC website is that of Behe. That says something, doesn't it?

What difference does it make what the Vatican says about ID? The RCC has no moral or intellectual authority to declare what is and isn't science.

One would, however, expect the Vatican authorities to recognize a relgious argument when they see one, and if they asserted that ID isn't science on that basis, their opinion should carry weight.

Opinions are irrelevant. We're concerned with factual, well-reasoned arguments.
