if you fear it outlaw it, that way you never have to be held to higher standards that higher learning requires! Well done Kansas Judge- no need for students to be exposed to learned objections to the religion of evolution!

There was no judge, it was the voters (who BTW were overwhelmingly Christian) which threw the mythology over science board members out of office. The inability to grasp simple facts and/or to flat out lie like that is one of the reasons your side was exposed and lost.
no need for students to be exposed to learned objections to the religion of evolution!
Sure there is, but here's the catch, 1st you must actually come up with one.
And no claiming, "I can't or won't see how xxxx could evolve therefore it must be Jesus" doesn't cut it.

Nobody has "outlawed" your beliefs. (The Web police haven't come around and arrested you yet, have they?) You're perfectly free to get in on the gravy train and set up your own CottShop Institute of Intelligent Design and Litigation. Get on the lecture tour circuit of the megachurches that agree with you. Fundraise. Run websites and magazines. Put out glossy publications about "ID" and hand them out to whoever you can get to listen. Hire theologians, lawyers, maybe even a down-on-his-luck scientist, somebody who has never specialized in evolutionary biology, but who at least has a Ph.D. in some science field, and for whatever personal reason will work with you. There's great money in it. The guy who started Domino Pizza is who bankrolls the Thomas More Law Center, which ran the Dover case for the "ID" side. It's not an "outlawed" activity at all. Lots of people are making a lot of money off this junk, and it's all legal. That's what makes it the perfect scam. That's why it never goes away. Not because it has any scientific merit, it doesn't. But because it's a gravy train for the people running it. The more they frighen schools into teaching evolution poorly or not at all, the more potential dupes they produce for the next generation of the scam.
