A Sign for Intelligent Designers

Dumb DesignPlease consider doing your own signing - of the petition to prevent UnIntelligent Design from being taught as "Science". It may even be true, I don't know, but it's not Science. It's Religion wearing a mask. Purest Supernatural Phlogiston.
Consider: if it were "Science", there could be experiments that would be able to detect whether the hypothesised Intelligent Designer was Thunderbird, the Rainbow Serpent, Osiris, YWVH, Allah, the Arisians, the Queen of the Space Unicorns or whoever. The fact that such experiments are inconceivable pushes it firmly outside the scientific realm.
