The Power of Cross Examination.

Intelligent Design proponent Michael Behe, giving testimony yesterday, agreed that astrology would be considered a scientific theory if judged by the same standards as he wished Intelligent Design to be judged.


Via Skeptico.

Behe is testifying a the lead expert witness for intelligent design proponents in a trial over the decision of schools in Dover, Pennsylvania to include intelligent design in its science curricula. The U.S. Supreme Court has previously held that Creationism cannot be included in school curricula as science.
