Californians challenge so-called Intelligent Design

From the L.A. Times: "A group of parents in the small Tehachapi mountain community of Lebec on Tuesday filed the first lawsuit challenging the teaching of 'intelligent design' in a California public school."

Those parents have my undivided support. And as a student of philosophy, albeit political philosophy, I find the attempt to teach ID as philosophy utterly reprehensible. Somewhere, Socrates's screams are echoing around the cave.

For more, see The Carpetbagger Report, Pharyngula, and a guy who knows a thing or two about California politics, Calpundit himself, Kevin Drum at Political Animal.

My last post on ID, with links to all my previous ones, is here.
