US Constitution 1, Creationists 0

A federal court has ruled that teaching intelligent design violates the seperation clause. They also had some very interesting things to say about the "theory":

    We have concluded that it is not [science], and moreover that ID cannot uncouple itself from its creationist, and thus religious, antecedents... To be sure, Darwin's theory of evolution is imperfect. However, the fact that a scientific theory cannot yet render an explanation on every point should not be used as a pretext to thrust an untestable alternative hypothesis grounded in religion into the science classroom or to misrepresent well-established scientific propositions...
Keep mythology where it belongs: in mythology class. Keep science where it belongs: in science class.
