(Orginally posted at the Pennsylvania ACLU blog
in a post about the Kitzmiller vs. Dover trial.)
While Everyman's being a dope
All right-thinking readers should hope
That his religious whine
For "intel'gent design"
Doesn't go down a slippery slope.
For there's one thing that is in no doubt;
When all of the facts have come out
Dover's ID "teaching"
Is poorly-hid preaching
Intended to please the devout.
But as sure as a bird's not a tree
There are things we're intended to see
Though there's things that we lack
We must know that the facts
Are as science reveals them to be.
While there is much hard work involved
The big puzzle's
slowly being solved
Some think it uncouth
But it shows that the truth
Is that all life on earth has evolved.
Denial will do, for a clod.
Truth's not a hard road to be trod.
This "Everyman" farce
Is just being an arse
Who thinks that his lying serves God.
