The count of county school boards in Florida adopting antievolution resolutions is now claimed to be at 12. And PZ Myers at Pharyngula notes that the various school boards have been adopting the same resolution.
That, PZ explains, means that there are people working stealthily behind the scenes to bring this about across the state of Florida.
When it comes down to this all going to court, as it looks more like doing all the time, that kind of widespread action involving a large number of people, some of them obviously challenged in the intellectual gifts department, is not going to remain a secret. It will come out… the question is, when? Will it be like the bombshell in the Kitzmiller case where Bill Buckingham and Alan Bonsell had to face up to their inconsistent testimony over the matter of who donated the money to buy 60 copies of “Of Pandas and People”, when the plaintiffs were able to produce a copy of the check Buckingham handed over to Bonsell for that very purpose? Somebody is going to give up the identity of the folks organizing this whole thing, they’ll be subpoenaed to obtain their correspondence on the topic, and I’m predicting that the result will be significant for a court looking into the purpose prong of the Lemon test.
