High Court Turns Away California Evolution Case

| 1 Comment

A few years ago, a California parent filed a lawsuit objecting to a Web site, sponsored by a public university in her state, that basically espouses the view that believing in evolution is not incompatible with belief in God. Many scientists, who are Christians and believers of various stripes, share that view, though the plaintiff in the lawsuit apparently does not.

Today, the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear the case of that parent, Jeanne E. Caldwell. Our school law blogger Mark Walsh has a nice summary of the case, with plenty of background information, here.

It's good to hear a shave of sanity in the news for once. I'm in no position to comment on the existence of God, but I do believe that if there is a higher power, that entity would certainly be able to set up a system to evolve the way life on earth has, of its own accord.
