More on ID

Well, the Intelligent Design debate has finally arrived in Australia. It's not clear who is driving it (I think we may just be playing follow-the-leader with the USA again), but there is enough of an interest in it to cause a journalist to ask the federal education minister whether he supports it being taught in Australian schools. His reply was that he would "not oppose" it being taught "if parents want it". Nice fence-sitting, Brendan!

Meantime, Pharyngula has discovered a new movement to promote the teaching of Intelligent Falling -- a critique of the "theory" of gravity.
