So much for "intelligent design"

A US judge has confirmed what we all knew: that "intelligent design" is not a scientific theory, but a transparent attempt to promote religion, and that teaching it in public schools violates the separation of church and state. The particular issue was already pretty much moot, as the school board responsible had been de-elected over it, but other schools and other states are still trying to push their religious propaganda in the classroom. This ruling will at least provide some ammunition against that.

The full ruling is here [PDF].
