At long last... some sanity.

Scopes Monkey Trial, part II is over. Unlike the outcome of the first, the creationists lost this one. It turns out that there are some sane people left among the millions of zealots in this country.

The thing that worries me though is that this case was determined primarily due to the excess of evidence that the school board made multiple god references while debating the subject. There was even a quote from Charlotte Buckingham to the effect of "2,000 years ago someone died on a cross. Can’t someone take a stand for him?"

My worry is that when this nonsense is introduced elsewhere (e.g., Kansas) will we have a situation where the school board will just be a little more cautious in what it says?

At least this one is dead, all 8 of the 9 board members that supported adding ID to the curriculum were voted out in November so there will be no appeal.
