The ID folks are touting an amicus brief in Dover, despite its lack of obvious relevance:
Eighty-five scientists have filed an Amicus Brief in the Kitzmiller v. Dover trial asking the Judge to “affirm the freedom of scientists to pursue scientific evidence wherever it may lead” and not limit research into the scientific theory of intelligent design. Not all the signers are proponents of intelligent design, but they do agree “that protecting the freedom to pursue scientific evidence for intelligent design stimulates the advance of scientific knowledge.”
Sure, let them keep trying to come up with prediction from ID. Let them do their research. Whatever. If the Discovery Institute didn’t notice, Dover is not about freedom of research, it’s about what we teach in school.
In other news, 10319 scientists have signed the petition stating that IDC is not science, all in the last 4 days.
