I'm a monkey!?111!?///!?222

As some of you might know Kitzmller v. Dover School District is the Scopes Trial of the 21st Century. The National Center for Science Education has been blogging the whole thing. This weekend I got to catch up on the voluminous trial trancripts and couldn't help but LOL at some of the testimony including one of the members of the curriculum committee, Bill Buckingham, who was on the ID side of the issue.


Q: Do you have an understanding in very simple terms of what intelligent design stands for?What does it teach?
A: Other than what I've expressed that scientists, a lot of scientists, don't ask me the names, I can't tell you where it came from, a lot of scientists believe that back through time something, molecules, amoeba, whatever, evolved into the complexities of life we have now.

I sincerely hope that all parents on both sides of the ID issue in Dover can, after this trial, agree that Bill Buckingham should not decide what their children, or fish, should be learning.

The point of this whole post was to point out the Dover school district board election results in which all the ID proponents lost their seats. I wonder what the odds are of an appeal should the School lose after these results?

I'm feeling a little guilty for eating so much spaghetti last night.
