The Evolution of the Intelligent Design Creationism Hoax

Jim Lippard pointed out this new video from the National Center for Science Education.

It’s concise and well done, concentrating on the transitional fossil found that chains the “Intelligent Design” movement solidly to its evolutionary ancestor, Creationism. “Intelligent Design” was itself an intermediate form, as The Hoax then mutated into “Teach the Controversy” and most recently into “Academic Freedom”.

These of course are just cheap disguises designed to fool federal courts into believing that there is a non-religious motivation behind attacks on Science education in America. Besides being scientifically without merit, they are both unconstitutional and dishonest. It’s exactly what we’ve come to expect from the crowd that pushes them.

Fortunately, federal judges, even “good old boy[s] brought up through the conservative ranks” and “appointed by GW hisself”” have thus far seen right through the veil of sciency sounding words.

Enjoy the video.

And for a bonus video, here’s one on the subject to which I am especially partial, with special guest star Dover Area School District Board-member, William “I never said Creationism” Buckingham:

    he..he…he…she said “missing link”…

    I really love the elegance of the analogy, Kevin. It really must chap Dembski’s ass, which is just icing on the cake.

    I was just lurking over at AtBC. Tell me you’re not carrying on extended threads with Zero…

  4. Lou FCD Says:

    Zero’s whacked out. He’s way gone, into numerology and all sorts of strange woo that has no relation to reality.

    However (and it’s a big however), he mostly keeps to his own thread and doesn’t bother people or troll or de-rail the other threads. He doesn’t break the rules, so as far as I’m concerned, he might be a nut-job, but he’s a harmless nut-job and rather pleasant to converse with.
