Several bloggers have drawn attention to the fact that it was 5 years ago today that Judge Jones handed down his verdict in the Dover trial regarding Intelligent Design. Among those who have posted is Lauri Lebo, who covered the trial and wrote a book about it, The Devil in Dover: An Insider’s Story of Dogma v. Darwin in Small-Town America. Others include Panda’s Thumb and Why Evolution is True.
What a great Christmas gift Christians like Judge Jones and Ken Miller gave to the people of Dover and the nation that Christmas season: defense of high quality science education. It is unfortunate that such a wonderful gift is sometimes not appreciated.
