I believe you read the article backwards. The ACLU is suing to have a recent decision to include ID removed ...
[from the article, quoting the ACLU lawyer representing the parents:]
"If we lose this case, I suspect it will send a green light to many school districts across the country that it is okay to teach ID," he says. "If we win, hopefully it will put a break on what we view as a religious concept."
Thats exactly what I hope will happen. This ID crap is not science, its
a thinly disguised attempt to foist yet another broken down concept
to deliberately confuse young people in an attempt to throw a wrench
into a REAL theory, the theory of evolution. ID has no real scientific
basis, one of the tenents of science is to have the ability to disprove
and those scientists attempting to foist ID on schools are more than
welcome to launch papers, show evidence that passes peer review with
the goal of disproving evolutionalry theory. The problem with ID as
an actual scientific concept is there is no way to disprove it, therefore
it is ultimately in the realm of faith, you believe it or you don't,
ID'ers won't be launching real papers to fight evolution of fair grounds
because they don't have a chance in hell of proving anything. They
just want to tear down Darwin's theory any way they can by any means
at their disposal. This is not science, however much these bozo's with
PHD's who try to push ID try to make pseudoscience into real science
with arguements, counter arguements, real archeological evidence,
radioactive dating, DNA analysis, they do none of those things, just
offer blithe words just like all pseudoscientists.
