Intelligent Decision about Intelligent Design

US District Judge John E. Jones III has issued a thoughtful and intelligent legal decision that hits the nail on the head about the problem in the Intelligent Design (ID) debate. The judge’s decision recognizes that science (and science only) should be taught in science class. After a painstaking review of the testimony offered at trial, the judge states that ID is clearly NOT science, and thus has no place in public school curriculum. Other fields of discipline are certainly free (and even encouraged) to address the same or similar questions, but intellectual honesty requires that these fields, along with their presumptions and assumptions, be named for what they are. Science is science; theology is theology.
