Darwin's Struggle agianst I.D.- Now a game

While perusing the NYT Science Times today, something I assume conservatives don't do, I happened on a commentary heralding the misguided attempt to tout I.D. as science. The author, Cornelia Dean, references the many growing humorous jabs at I.D. including the Flying Spaghetti Monster as well as a new game; Bone Wars from Zygote Games.

In BONE WARS, players take the role of paleontologists during the great "Dinosaur Rush" of the late 19th Century.

Zygote is offering a discount to Kansas orders.

Why give a discount to Kansas? Why not Wyoming or Vermont? Simple: the Kansas Board of Education has attempted to give equal space in the state public school biology curriculum to the doctrine of "Intelligent Design," claiming that it is a "scientific theory" about the origin and development of life. It isn't, of course, and when real scientists complained that "Intelligent Design" fits none of the criteria for an actual scientific theory, the Board responded by redefining "science" so that it is no longer limited to the search for natural explanations for phenomena.
