Intelligent Design - It's a Miracle!

Intelligent Design scholars (isn't that an oxymoron?) are busy playing the media circuit this week making their case. Yes, it's absolutely miraculous because the Discovery Institute's brilliantly executed and well-funded propaganda machine is gaining national attention and finally giving ID credence in a country that was founded on the ideals of separation of church and state and freedom of religion.

These so-called scientists and scholars are miraculously converting heretics into true believers. Our President and Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist have miraculously forgotten about the Constitution. And, Frist, the latest yahoo to jump on the ID bandwagon, may miraculously become President in 2008 despite alienating the faithful because of a few stem cells. Again, miraculously, ID is going to save our children and our schools by putting God where he belongs, back in the classroom and on the test. As this New York Times article a.k.a. ID 101 reveals - it's all PART OF THE BIG PLAN -- the Wedge project. Miraculously, it has created a wedge larger than the almighty when he split the Red Sea.

Oh and btw, the best part of this miracle is how NCLB is helping teachers and students recognize their sinful ways. Oh bless those standardista souls!
President Bush's signature education law, known as No Child Left Behind, also helped, as mandatory testing prompted states to rewrite curriculum standards. Ohio, New Mexico and Minnesota have embraced the institute's "teach the controversy" approach; Kansas is expected to follow suit in the fall. (NYT)

What's next? How about a chapter in the new science textbooks on the toothfairy, Santa Claus and leprechauns? Leaving them out would simply be un-American. Let's pray.
