so far, lower Courts are beating back ID, sooner or later the issue will get to the Supremes and we shall see.

Fair enough. Ultimately though I think this issue will be settled for economic reasons. As we continue to shift away from manufacturing, jobs in this country will shift to either low-pay service or high pay technology.

Scientists and science companies are not going to be attracted to areas that are seen as antagonistic to science. A university in a state that mandates some form of creationist education will have problems attracting quality faculty. A school district that must entertain supernatural causation in its science curriculum will not be the first choice of science teachers.

In a competitive, free market society, stepping backwards often incurs a large cost.
