"We have concluded that it is not [science], and moreover that intelligent design cannot uncouple itself from its creationist, and thus religious, antecedents ... To be sure, Darwin's theory of evolution is imperfect. However, the fact that a scientific theory cannot yet render an explanation on every point should not be used as a pretext to thrust an untestable alternative hypothesis grounded in religion into the science classroom or to misrepresent well-established scientific propositions."

--U.S. District Judge John Jones, in his Tuesday ruling against teaching intelligent design in the Dover Area School District in Pennsylvania. For a link to the text of the decision, visit www.boiseweekly.com.
