Nature Magazine reports – Evolution wins in Pennsylvania trial (ok, that was yesterday – I never claimed this was a news site!)…
I especially like the fact that the judge not only dismissed the case – but that he called the efforts to promote Intelligent Design “breathtaking inanity” and that he “went on to state that intelligent design was clearly religious and indubitably not science.” (from the Science article) He also concluded that the religious nature of ID would be readily apparent to a child!
Now let’s see what pat robertson has to say about this one…(remember when the voters tossed out the school board that approved this nonsense in the first place he said “I’d like to say to the good citizens of Dover: If there is a disaster in your area, don’t turn to God, you just rejected Him from your city. And don’t wonder why He hasn’t helped you when problems begin…” – I still cannot believe that one…)
All that being said – I wish someone would publish a research paper analyzing how this pile of nonsense ever made it to the forefront of public debate so quickly. In my opinion this is another great example of how marketers might have a few things to learn from the world of politics.
