Score one for intelligence in public education. Today a Pennsylvania federal judge ruled teaching so-called “intelligent design” in the classroom violates the constitutionally mandated separation of church and state. In his ruling, the judge said “Our conclusion today is that it is unconstitutional to teach ID as an alternative to evolution in a public school science classroom” and “We find that the secular purposes claimed by the board amount to a pretext for the board’s real purpose, which was to promote religion in the public school classroom.” Are ID proponents the next Dodos?

“While magic as I understand it is more a craft than an art or a science, the basic principle holds. The medium of magic is consciousness — one’s own consciousness, that of other people, and (more controversially, at least within the worldview of modern industrial culture) that of other-than-human entities of various kinds. The tools of magic are will, imagination, and the innate structures of consciousness itself, constellated through formal patterns of symbol and ritual. The goals of magic are defined by the individual magician.”
