ID as nominal philosophy

LA Times reports on a California lawsuit concerning “Intelligent Design.”

Since Intelligent Design as a science was universally shut down, the idea this time is to nominally call Intelligent Design “Philosophy of Design” while teaching it as a science or religion course. It’s a lot like a long car trip with your older brother in reverse: you agree upon a line you cannot cross and then he puts his finger over, then his arm over, an escalates until you start fighting again. Amusing stuff.

The most interesting part of this case is that the public school in question is in Lebec, CA. I often stop for gas there on my long drive down to San Diego.

Looks like this “Intelligent Design” thing is going to be like a really long car ride…
