Intelligent Design In Kentucky Wednesday, January 11, 2006

The Intelligent Design issue continues to rear it's head everywhere and is now in Kentucky after Governor Ernie Fletcher mentioned it at the end of his "State of the Commonwealth" speech. This problem continues throughout the nation despite the federal court ruling in Pennsylvania. While many see this as an emotional issue, hitting at people's core belief structure, in order to overcome this we must used reasoned logic and continue to work on the people who can make sure it's not being integrated into our education.

Fortunately, as an article in the Herald-Leader shows, Fletcher isn't entirely prepared for this fight either. He's more just baring his throat to the religious right/nutjobs who're trying to run things.

Regardless of Fletcher, this is becoming a serious wedge issue for 2006. I could be wrong but it seems to be picking up steam in places and some groups may try to push it although it would seem moot since the court ruling. More than 50% of the population support the ID or creationism notions behind religion and really the earthy as a whole.
