One More from the Vatican

One last tale - for now - on the Vatican's refutation of Intelligent Design. Rev. George Coyne, the Jesuit director of the Vatican Observatory (noted as "one of the oldest astronomical research institutions in the world," per the AP) says it quite clearly last Friday:
Intelligent design isn't science even though it pretends to be...If you want to teach it in schools, intelligent design should be taught when religion or cultural history is taught, not science.
(Full article from AP)

Okay. We're done now, right? "Logical explanation based on empirical evidence" class should cover "logical explanations based on empirical evidence."

As per the note near the end of this article, however, maybe the Pope should have lunch with him know, bounce a few ideas off each other...
