This National Review Article,
A Blood Libel on Our Civilization, exactly captures my feelings on the intellectual dishonesty of the Intelligent Design movement and their stupid movie, Expelled. Intelligent Design is nothing more than warmed-over Creationism, a bunch of religious claptrap pretending to be a science. The fool that wrote the book on ID couldn't be even troubled to do more than going to the edit menu and choosing Replace All on creationism and changing it to Intelligent Design. Too bad a conservative judge caught him and called him on it.
I guess now that Intelligent Design has been shown to be the same thing as Creationism, the Creationist will have to rename their movement again... In Florida, it's being called Academic Freedom, the right for teachers to "critically examine" Evolution. I wonder why these anti-science clowns don't want to critically examine gravity. I suppose it's because the intellectual step-children of the pope that Galileo challenged consider that battle to have already been lost.
