|...the point is that if we don't combat them, they will win. I don't look at this as just science vs the DI. The DI is a (particularly mendacious) head of a hydra that has, at the neck, anti-intellectualism. The outcome of having them or one of the other heads win this would be a theocracy, or, at the very least, an idiotocracy. I wish I could discount that as being improbable, but since this country elected Reagan and Bush, I don't ever want to underestimate the power of propaganda over the ill-informed. Your mileage may vary, of course, but I just don't see the value in ceding any ground at all to the would-be theocrats and boobs.|
and it seems, to me at least, where ever we find a group attempting to derail public education in the sciences, one or more of the intelligent design covens are to some degree or another involved in supporting that effort.
