The War on Science
The link will open, in a new window, the first episode of a 2006 documentary on "intelligent design" made by the BBC.
There is a more ominous reason than it simply being false why this monstrous idea needs to be obliterated without mercy by anybody with two brain cells, and that is what kind of sociological consequences the act of teaching irrational concepts to school children is having. One of the things that separate open and informed societies from various alternative reality projects past and present is that it makes no claim to know, much less teach, any variety of "truth" that cannot be proven by the standard scientific method. It is bad enough to have that crap hammered in at home but it becomes a force of tyranny when propagated by the govermental authorities.
