|Unlike Lenny though I think it was Dover that was the turning point rather than Kansas (although Kansas was a heavy blow). Surely most of us was worried in the run-up to Dover? They had a (aparently) dream choice of Judge. It was only after the trial comenced that their stupidity started becoming obvious.|
Nah, their stupidity was obvious at Kansas. As soon as they had some dickweed testify that teaching *mathemetics* had a religious effect, it was obvious they simply had nothing serious to offer.
Until Kansas, the press was treating ID with kid gloves. After Kansas, the press coverage was universally negative. That was the turning point.
Even had the IDers won in Dover, they would have lost the appeals. Just like the anti-evolutioners have lost every OTHER Federal court case they have ever been involved with. Every single one.
