A federal judge in Pennsylvania today struck down a school board’s policy on including “intelligent design” in high school biology classes as an alternative to evolution, ruling that the requirement illegally promoted religion in public schools.
In his 139-page ruling, Jones wrote that intelligent design was essentially biblical creationism. He also harshly denounced the Dover Area School Board for its decision to promote intelligent design and said board members repeatedly lied in court about their motives.
Sounds about right. But of course he was accused of being an “activist judge”.
