"It's part of a pattern. There is basically a war on anyone who dissents from Darwin and we've seen that for several years," said John West, associate director of Center for Science and Culture at the Seattle-based Discovery Institute. "This is free speech, freedom of conscience 101."


Astrology, voodoo, and intelligent designers that operate through mysterious and inexplicable magical powers that can't be seen, measured, or even demonstrated to exist are scientific no-no's.

This is like a converted atheist suing a church for stripping him of his clerical status.

...he was discriminated against because he engaged his co-workers in conversations about intelligent design and handed out DVDs on the idea while at work.

He also would have been terminated for engaging in discussions against religion (and handing out Religulous). In my work place any form of preaching is strictly forbidden. It creates a hostile work environment (especially if the "preacher" is a supervisor of others). Offenders would be subject to discipline and/or termination.

The Alliance Defense Fund, a Christian civil rights group, and the Discovery Institute, a proponent of intelligent design, are both supporting Coppedge's case.




There is nothing on ADF's site about it, other than a link to an old article.


And the Discovery Institute (have they actually discovered anything yet?) did so well in Dover that I can't wait to see how this turns out.

David Coppedge, the creationist who was fired from JPL and is currently trying to sue them, has submitted his legal brief as plaintiff in the case. It is…bizarre. It includes a screenplay in which Coppedge imagines a dialog between a couple of JPL staff — a dialog in which he was not present, which basically makes it a work of fiction.

Are court cases often resolved on the basis of creative writing?

A former computer specialist at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory was not dismissed because he advocated his belief in intelligent design while at work, a Superior Court judge has tentatively ruled.
