When You Know You've Lost

If a supposedly scientific argument needs a legislature's protection, it is already defunct.

Bill Zedler, a member of the Texas House of Representatives, has declared Intelligent Design dead:


An institution of higher education may not discriminate against or penalize in any manner, especially with regard to employment or academic support, a faculty member or student based on the faculty member's or student's conduct of research relating to the theory of intelligent design or other alternate theories of the origination and development of organisms.

Just in case someone misses the point, banning religious dogma from high school science classes is not the same thing as trying to protect ID in academia.

No one, outside crazies, expects real science to originate in high schools.

Despite propaganda, such as Expelled, if someone can come up with the real goods, they will get a hearing in academia. Of course, those who challenge well-established science will have a hard row to hoe, but the history of science is replete with examples of those who have succeeded.

Bill Zedler has conceded that ID has no chance to do that.

The obvious comment, yet one that should not be neglected for that, is that there is no "theory of intelligent design."

'Someone did something for some reason' does not lend itself to the construction of a theory.

In his argument, did Zedler offer any examples of Intelligent Design "research?"
... did Zedler offer any examples of Intelligent Design "research?"

Of course not, silly! It's all been discriminated against!
