Evolution wins in court. Judge John Jones (say that three times fast), has "concluded that intelligent design is not science". This from a conservative judge appointed by Bush. You get the feeling that despite how many 'conservative' judges are appointed to federal positions, they typically follow the logic and reasoning of law and the intent of the Constitution rather than their own religious or spiritual leanings or the dogma of the politicians who appointed them. While it may appear that some recent court decisions have been framed by "Liberal" ideals, I think the opposite is true. Instead of proving Liberal ideas to be legally sound, it more often reveals "Conservative" ideals to be in contrast to the original intent of the American legal system. Okay, I'm out of my league here, but it's fun to sling the hash occasionally.
