As I've said here before, it's unclear why any ID shill would aspire to proselytize "the word" to students in science classes. Your average garden-variety ID shill, admittedly one of the least intellectually curious among us, is convinced, with no scientific basis in fact, that the answer to any question asked is:“Guddidit!!!”

So why should he be allowed to foul the educational pool with loose talk in science classes about alternative theories, a mythological super being and Grimm-like what ifs? Perhaps we should require aspiring science teachers, when entering college, to sign a “loyalty oath,” to teach scientific fact and theories only.

Maybe if the light is continually shined on this cockroach it will crawl back into the woodwork and be lost to obscurity.
