I gather that a court in the US has ruled that teaching ‘Intelligent is a breach of the seperation of Church and State and hence against the Constitution of the USA. The case was brought by parents at a Pennsylvania school who were dismayed that intelligent design was being taught alongside evolution in biology classes, as the local school board believed this would make the curriculum more balanced.
Unfortunately, this is a case where this balance would be false. No doubt the theory of evolution will be subject to further modifications, but scientifically speaking it’s the only show in town.
I’m sure I don’t fully appreciate the constitutional aspects of this case.
But as for the science, the judge has hit the nail squarely on its head.
