"Intelligent Design" just another name for Creationism

Gosh. Who knew??

In one of the biggest courtroom clashes between faith and evolution since the 1925 Scopes Monkey Trial, a federal judge barred a Pennsylvania public school district Tuesday from teaching "intelligent design" in biology class, saying the concept is creationism in disguise.

...

Jones decried the "breathtaking inanity" of the Dover policy and accused several board members of lying to conceal their true motive, which he said was to promote religion.

A six-week trial over the issue yielded "overwhelming evidence" establishing that intelligent design "is a religious view, a mere re-labeling of creationism, and not a scientific theory," said Jones, a Republican and a churchgoer appointed to the federal bench three years ago.

The school system said it will probably not appeal the ruling, because the members who backed intelligent design were ousted in November's elections and replaced with a new slate opposed to the policy.

I love that last sentence.

Surely a good decision by the judge. On the other hand, I am influenced by messages from the Holy Spirit on The Christian Prophet blog which are concerned with dictatorship in public schools and judicial dictatorship. More lightly, a message on The Holy Inheritance blog said we are all created by love.
