Marburger on ID

Bush science advisor John Marburger has taken a lot of well deserved heat for lending credibility to the administration's ongoing efforts to abuse science to suit their needs. But backing Intelligent Design is too much even for him. Chris Mooney has the story:

Speaking at the annual conference of the National Association of Science Writers, Marburger fielded an audience question about “Intelligent Design” (ID), the latest supposedly scientific alternative to Charles Darwin's theory of descent with modification. The White House's chief scientist stated point blank, “Intelligent Design is not a scientific theory.” And that's not all -- as if to ram the point home, Marburger soon continued, “I don't regard Intelligent Design as a scientific topic.”
