Via Hannah Maxsom and the Cornell IDEA club, I thought I’d pass this along:
Should intelligent design be allowed in public schools?:
That’s the question we’re going to be debating tomorrow [Wednesday, 11/29] — 6:30 PM, McGraw 165 . IDEA (represented by Sean and [Hannah]) will be arguing in favor of academic freedom, and the Cornell ACLU will present their case for why ID shouldn’t be allowed. So come out and support one side or the other! This’ll be in place of our regular Music Room discussions, and the last event of the semester.
I’ll support the academic freedom of intelligent design when they want to teach about the flying spaghetti monster and intelligent falling… seriously… the Cornell IDEA club isn’t at all interested in “academic freedom,” they just want their pet theory to be given a free pass in the meritocracy of science.
Why would anyone want to go listen to these same old creationist tactics? And when will they display the slightest hint of interest in actually studying biology?
