OK, so you might be wondering why I would start a blog on ID science after the Judge Jones fiasco in Dover, PA. Well, it’s because I happen to know that ID is indeed science and that Darwinism is headed for its downfall, that ruling or not.
OK, so the head of the school board was caught lying, and he explicitly linked ID science to his particular brand of religion, but what does that prove? It only proves that he is unscrupulous and also ignorant of what ID science is and is not. So, he thinks this particular science supports his worldview, well, so what? PZ Myers certainly thinks Darwinism supports his worldview, as does Dawkins, Harris, Dennett, etc. Doesn’t this mean that Darwinism should also be ruled as religious – not science?
Add to this the fact that on Darwin Day, groups like NCSE actively try to have religious leaders push Darwinism on their clergies from the pulpit no less. Can anyone else smell the double standard here?
