We Can Assume Intelligent Design Played No Role In Chimpy’s Creation

From Holden:

Bush’s mumblings regarding “intelligent design” has his official science advisor scrambling to explain the president’s stupidity.

Mr. Bush’s science adviser, John H. Marburger 3rd, sought to play down the president’s remarks as common sense and old news.

Mr. Marburger said in a telephone interview that “evolution is the cornerstone of modern biology” and “intelligent design is not a scientific concept.” Mr. Marburger also said that Mr. Bush’s remarks should be interpreted to mean that the president believes that intelligent design should be discussed as part of the “social context” in science classes.
