"Using Your Brain" Award Winner for December 2005

This months winner of the “Using Your Brain Award” is federal judge John Jones, a Republican appointed by President Bush (!), who has ruled that “Intelligent Design” is based on religion not science. In the judge's 139-page ruling is this paragraph, in my opinion the most wonderful piece of rational logic I’ve heard on the “ID” debate:

"To be sure, Darwin's theory of evolution is imperfect. However, the fact that a scientific theory cannot yet render an explanation on every point should not be a pretext to thrust an untestable alternative hypothesis grounded in religion into the science classroom or to misrepresent well-established scientific propositions.''

Kudos to judge Jones for seeing this debate for what it really is and engaging his brain for the benefit of us all!
