Friday Night Film: Judgment Day: Intelligent Design on Trial

Sometimes I am glad that I live in Canada and I don't have to deal with the religious right pushing backwards creationism/"intelligent design" into public schools. But, dear viewers, don't think everything is alright in our home on native land. Minister of State for Science and Technology Gary Goodyear recently declined to answer wither or not he believes in evolution because he's "a Christian" and he doesn't "think anybody asking a question about my religion is appropriate".

Luckily for our brothers in the south, attempts to introduce creationism into schools have been mostly blocked by smart science and educated judges. Judgment Day: Intelligent Design on Trial is an award-winning NOVA documentary on the case of Kitzmiller v. Dover Area School District, a landmark case that showed once and for all the phony science and religious connotation of so called “intelligent design”. It features interviews with the judge, witnesses, and lawyers as well as re-enacted scenes using the official transcript of the trial.

Enjoy!
