Of course, within the narrow context of the US Constitution, Judge John Jones’ ruling is correct. There can be no rational dispute about that. The US Constitution prohibits State advocacy of any religion, and "Intelligent Design" is repackaged religion.
Jones decried the "breathtaking inanity" of the Dover policy and
accused several board members of lying to conceal their true motive,
which he said was to promote religion.
A six-week trial over the issue yielded "overwhelming evidence"
establishing that intelligent design "is a religious view, a mere
re-labeling of creationism, and not a scientific theory," said Jones, a
Republican and a churchgoer appointed to the federal bench three years
I applaud Judge Jones on his objectivity.
In a wider context, children ought to be taught and instilled the values their parents would impart to them, at their own expense, of course, living with the full consequences of what they do (or don’t) teach them. But in our greater "wisdom," we have instead devised a system where everyone pays the cost of education for everyone but themselves; thus, no one owns it, no one has an absolute say in what’s taught, and no one is happy with the product or the result.
Rather than focusing on what we will learn, we focus instead on what we will "teach" to others. Our "wisdom" knows no bounds.
