intelligent design = creationism

Federal Judge John E. Jones III made the proper ruling today in the Dover school board intelligent design case. To quote the Judge, "The evidence at trial demonstrates that intelligent design is nothing less than the progeny of creationism."

Further, he said "We conclude that the religious nature of intelligent design would be readily apparent to an objective observer, adult or child. The writings of leading (intelligent design) proponents reveal that the designer postulated by their argument is the God of Christianity."

One small sign of intelligence today in an otherwise dismal sea of unhappy and scary news. Oh, by the way, Jones is a Republican who once considered running for Governor of Pennsylvania.
