Intelligent Design, electoral failure

In Dover, PA voters removed all 6 advocates of Intelligent Design in a clean School Board sweep.

Here's the concession they made according to Wesley R. Elsberry:


"It should be noted that the incoming board members from the Dover CARES campaign have a platform plank saying that 'intelligent design' will be taught in Dover public schools. However, the venue of such instruction will not be the science classrooms, where it was out-of-place, but rather an elective course on comparative religion, where it fits perfectly."
It's a victory to be sure, and a solid one, but the crucial part of the actual instruction of I.D., in my view, is that it's taught as Theology and not as Science, even if it is an elective. That's the problem, that it's taught as a competing scientific theory when there's nothing scientific about it. Nothing. (ThePanda'sThumb)
