"Intelligent Design": Simply a Cover for Creationist Idiocy

And one of the chief proponents of ID wants to make the recent court ruling against the teaching of this nonsense a rallying point for the creationists:

William Dembski, an ID proponent who teaches science and theology at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, says evolution supporters lost the Scopes trial of 1925 and turned it into a rallying cry. He suggested backers of intelligent design might do the same with the Jones opinion: "There are cultural voices in play that can render that verdict obsolete."

You see that, folks? If we can't win the argument by the use of science, we'll win it "culturally". You see, to the Radical Right, it's all about the "culture", in other words, creating an environment where everybody has to kiss the ass of any lunatic idea the Right believes in, true or not.

To paraphrase Thomas Huxley, I'd rather be descended from an ape than be descended from an ID proponent.
