The IDiots lose

Phew, the intelligent design case in Dover, PA, came out in favour of evolution. It's unconstitutional to teach IDiocy. Not surprising, but a relief all the same. My favourite quote from the decision:

To be sure, Darwin's theory of evolution is imperfect. However, the fact that a scientific theory cannot yet render an explanation on every point should not be used as a pretext to thrust an untestable alternative hypothesis grounded in religion into the science classroom or to misrepresent well-established scientific propositions.
