ID and Public Education

Via Pharyngula:

This petition is in response to the Discovery Institute's petition "A Scientific Dissent From Darwinism" signed, since 2001, by 400 scientists, as of July 2005. That petition is presented to the public as a scientific endorsement of the religion-based concept of Intelligent Design over Darwinism. Unfortunately, the majority, 83%, of these "scientists" are not schooled in the fields that utilize evolutionary theory in detail, nor even in science, and they are not qualified to present their ideas in a way other than personal opinion. We feel this petition is misleading the public...

If you're a scientist (biologist, archaeologist, etc.) or educator you might consider signing the petition. [The deadline is 2:09PM EST Saturday Oct 1, 2005.]
