ID: An Invasive Species

Many assume that intelligent design is a product of the heartland. An example, as if another were needed, of the rural idiocy that infects so many of those who inhabit the vast emptiness of the flyover zone.

In truth, ID is a left coast product, hatched, where else, in Berkeley, California.

As Betsy Mason notes in the Contra Costa Times, "In the battle over teaching intelligent design in public schools, the national spotlight has been on the front lines far from California in places such as Kansas and Pennsylvania. But key soldiers on both sides of the fight live in the Bay Area."

ID is to Kansas what kudzu is to the South, zebra mussels are to the Great Lakes, and Asian swamp eels are to Florida canals and waterways -- an invasive species.
