More Flailing at Intelligent Design

I think that events like this one tell us something about the worldview and motives of a lot of the people who oppose intelligent design.

George Will and Charles Krauthammer continue to write bad opinion pieces on intelligent design, with a mixture of false and misleading claims. You have to wonder how they know that what happened in the Dover election allegedly is an indication of what's ahead, some sort of warning that we should heed, whereas the advances made by intelligent design in other places aren't. For a more realistic view of what happened in Kansas and a more realistic view of the scientific status of evolutionary theory, see Jonathan Wells' comments here and here.
