Judge "Jackass" Jones still on lecture circuit
Nine academic, scientific and cultural institutions around the city are holding a Year of Evolution, a series of exhibitions, seminars and lectures to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the birth of Charles Darwin next February, and the 150th anniversary of the publication of his seminal work, “The Origin of Species.”
Events will include a talk by John E. Jones III, a federal judge who ruled in 2005 that teaching intelligent design — the belief that some aspects of nature are so complex that they must be the work of a higher power rather than of evolution — in public school science classes was unconstitutional.
I wonder if Judge Jones will continue to violate his pledge to not speak publicly about the specifics of the Kitzmiller v. Dover case.
Also, I wonder why Philadelphia, of all places, is holding a "Year of Evolution" celebration.
