Thanks afarensis! I love the quote you cite, or more accurately, I love its description of a terrible problem.
Just earlier today, I was dabbling in the blogs of some unabashed Christian apologists. Writing comments, I was struggling to put into words how the creationists' response to Dover is even more cynical and nihilistic than the attempt to put ID on equal footing with evolutionary theory. That response has been essentially that if we can't teach our view, we'll just teach the view that science is worthless anyway, so don't even bother. The quote summed up the consequences of this response very nicely.
It was nice to see Lenny show up in the references.
The period needs to be removed for the Matzke link to work.
