More on Dover
The proponents of intelligent design (ID) have forcefully insisted that it is not religion, but an alternative scientific theory. Thus, it was striking that the day after the voters of Dover, PA ejected the pro-ID members of the Board of Education, numerous conservative Christian leaders cried out that Dover had rejected God. The most infamous comment was that of Pat Robertson, who predicted that God, having been run out of town, would not save Dover-ites in the event of a disaster (see prior post). These remarks effectively end the debate over the true nature of ID and its proponents.
