Actually, the Kansas School Board’s decision to redefine science had everything to do with the teaching of ID. They replaced the good science of Methodological Naturalism (that is, finding naturalistic explanations for observed phenomena) with something that was not science at all (as allowing supernatural explanations for observed phenomena falls outside the bounds of science). Moreover, it is common knowledge that the Kansas School Board was influenced by the Discovery Institute with regards to its science standards, and its changes to the curriculum were specifically designed to challenge evolutionary theory.
And as for the Dover case, while it may not have any immediate impact beyond that particular school district, it *has* established a legal precedent, which will presumably make things much easier for other challenges to the teaching of ID as “science.”
But of course, we Pastafarians *want* alternative theories discussed in the classroom. We’re just wondering why the Discovery Institute and its fellows still haven’t moved to embrace our eminently-logical and empirically-verifiable arguments. We can offer so much to bolster their claims, yet they continue to ignore us in favor of their zombified (and most assuredly NOT al dente) Savior. A pity.
