"We, as scientists trained in fields that utilize evolutionary theory, do not believe Intelligent Design to be a fact-based science appropriate for teaching in public schools because it is theistic in nature, not empirical, and therefore does not pass the rigors of scientific hypothesis testing and theory development. As such, we petition that Intelligent Design not be presented in public schools as a viable science within the scientific curriculum."Sign it. In mere hours they've outstripped the Discovery Institute's half-assed petition. Submitting the petition to the judge in Dover won't accomplish any more than sending it to the loons at the Kansas Board of Education, but it's a start.
