All the News That Fits

Reaction to the Cobb County sticker settlement is coming in from the National Center for Science Education, Americans United for Separation of Church and State, the Anti-Defamation League, Georgia Citizens for Science.

Reports on the settlement have been broadcast on the major television networks and in newspapers across the country. The blogosphere lit up after the ruling with posts on the settlement at Pharyngula, Dispatches from the Culture Wars and an uncounted number of other blogs.

There are a couple of places where you won't find out about the settlement.

The intelligent design wing of the blogosphere is maintaining radio silence -- as is its want following major defeats -- on the settlement.

While you can't read anything at all about the Cobb County settlement at William Dembski's Uncommon Descent blog, you can learn a great deal about the dangers of blasphemy, "a sin for which no forgiveness can be attained and for which the penalty is eternity in hell?"

At the Discovery Institute's Evolution News and Views blog, you won't find any mention at all of Cobb County -- that story was crowded out by the exciting news that the University of Virginia Magazine has published "Abbreviated Pro-ID Letters."

Why, that's almost like peer review. Isn't it?

Bye-the-way, it appears that Casey Luskin, who has more titles that a millipede has legs, now identifies himself as "Casey Luskin, President Emeritus, IDEA Center."
