Fox News alert a few minutes ago says the Dover School Board lost their bid to have Intelligent Design introduced into high school biology classes. The federal judge ruled that their case was based on the premise that Darwin's Theory of Evolution was incompatible with religion, and that this premise is false.
Reason and good sense triumph.
Legislating from the Bench.
Another judge (an agent of the government) making an official government proclamation about what is and isn't religion.
And I thought the constitution forbid the GOVERNMENT from establishing religion. Judges seem to be free from this restriction, and rule all the time about what IS and ISN'T religion.
I'd feel pretty upset if some judge said a symbol of MY religion was acceptable because it wasn't REALLY a religion.
Another defeat for the American Taliban.
Thank The Sum of All Laws of the Universe, our children may yet grow up able to compete with other scientific minds in the world.
Good. Intelligent design doesn't belong in science classes.
What was the count?
Great! Teach creation in sunday school, not science class. That's where it always belonged.
Next thing they will be shooting people in the head.(/S)
BTW ,Your post is moronic.
Yes! I wonder what housing costs are in Dover, PA?
Check later to see how thread evolves.
The constitution doesn't say anything about practicing your religion in a public school.
I don't believe this judge said you can't go to the church of your choice and worship any way you choose. That's what the separation of church and state is all about, not teaching religious "theories" in science class.
Judge's ruling, as I understand it.
How so? Religion does not belong in our schools science classes, why not? Because it's not science it's religion. Seems more like common sense to me.
"Thank The Sum of All Laws of the Universe, our children may yet grow up able to compete with other scientific minds in the world."
Yes through homeschooling.
Oh...were you meaning public schools?
