Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

When defined as such, the word is not capitalized. When capitalized, it refers to the Catholic Church as an institution or to its members. All words have multiple meanings, and which applies depends on context. Applying one meaning when another clearly fits the context is either dishonest or stupid.
Or both.

Kitzmiller v. Dover Area School District
United States District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania

Argued September 26, 2005-November 4, 2005,
Decided December 20, 2005
Full case name: Tammy Kitzmiller, et al. v. Dover Area School

Teaching intelligent design in public school biology classes violates the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States (and Article I, Section 3 of the Pennsylvania State Constitution) because intelligent design is not science and "cannot uncouple itself from its creationist, and thus religious,

U.S. Const. Amend. 1; Penn. Const. Art. I, 3
Tammy Kitzmiller, et al. v. Dover Area School District, et al.(400 F. Supp. 2d 707, Docket no. 4cv2688) was the first direct challenge brought in the United States federal courts testing a public school district policy that required the teaching of intelligent design.

In October 2004 the Dover Area School District changed its biology teaching curriculum to require that intelligent design be presented as an alternative to evolution theory, and that Of Pandas and People was to be used as a reference book.

The plaintiffs successfully argued that intelligent design is a form of creationism, and that the school board policy violated the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. The judge's decision sparked considerable response from both supporters and critics.

Eleven parents of students in Dover, York County, Pennsylvania, near the city of York, sued the Dover Area School District over the school board requirement that a statement presenting intelligent design as "an explanation of the origin of life that differs from Darwin's view" was to be read aloud in ninth-grade science classes when evolution was taught.

The plaintiffs were represented by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), Americans United for Separation of Church and State (AU) and Pepper Hamilton LLP. The National Center for Science Education (NCSE) acted as consultants for the plaintiffs. The defendants were represented by the Thomas More Law Center (TMLC).

The Foundation for Thought and Ethics, publisher of Of Pandas and People, a textbook advocating intelligent design and whose prominence within the trial was such that it is sometimes referred to as the Dover Panda Trial, tried to join the lawsuit late as a defendant but was denied for multiple reasons.

On December 20, 2005, Jones issued his 139-page findings of fact and decision ruling that the Dover mandate requiring the statement to be read in class was unconstitutional.

The ruling concluded that intelligent design is not science, and permanently barred the board from "maintaining the ID Policy in any school within the Dover Area School District, from requiring teachers to denigrate or disparage the scientific theory of evolution, and from requiring teachers to refer to a religious, alternative theory known as ID.

All 8 of the Dover school board members who were up for re-election on November 8, 2005 were defeated by a set of challengers who opposed the teaching of intelligent design in a science class.
(The ninth member was not up for re-election.) The school board president subsequently stated that the board did not intend to appeal the ruling.

Epic fail!

Science the winner - superstition the loser. ;)

That usage, until recently, might have been considered less than perfectly formal. It's getting more and more acceptable as time passes.

Also, of course, there's a long tradition behind it: "Clockwise,", "Otherwise", "Slantwise", "Sunwise"...

And if that's all you can find to cavil about...

There is no proof of God. Its all in the mind. It is a psychological projection, to enable the person to feel protection from harm, and from death. This is why the holy spirit is called comforter. It is a feeling of comfort that one gets from their own mind psychological projection.

Science lost. The Constitution also lost.

Judge Jones plagiarized nearly all of his writing on the case. Copied it word for word from the ACLU's brief in the case.

The brief was factually incorrect.

ID has nothing to do with religion; and religion in public schools is not prohibited by the Constitution.

Go learn something.

Wrong.

Theists also fear death, as do atheists.

Your theory is a psychological projection of your need to be right.

Mixed with some amateur psychobabble.
