Luskin can't be expected to stop lying about the past. You have to
wonder if he had second thoughts about posting this junk once he
started. It forced him to keep lying about the creationist ID scam, so
he must have realized that there was no future for the creationist ID
scam, and that the bait and switch was just going to continue. No one
was ever going to get any ID science to teach no matter how many times
Luskin updated his teach ID scam propaganda.
Intelligent Design Briefing Packet for Educators:
Glenn used to regularly put up this briefing packet as evidence that the
ID science existed, but he never could state what the ID science was
supposed to be.
Part 3: It's Time for Some Folks to Get Over Dover.
As the briefing packet indicates it is the ID perps that need to get
over Dover. They have updated this packet around every 3 years since
it's 2007 publication. Luskin had updated it in 2009 and it was
probably about to be updated when Luskin was writing this (Dec 2011).
The Briefing Packet is currently on it's 2021 edition. In it they
continue to lie about there being any ID science to teach in the public
schools. Luskin understands that they are lies because the ID perps
have never added a lesson plan to this packet. Educators have no idea
of what they can teach, and when the creationist rubes decide to teach
it anyways, the bait and switch has gone down on the rubes 100% of the
time. No IDiot creationist rubes ever have gotten any ID science to
teach from the ID perps.
Has ID Been Banned from Public Schools?
No. Science teachers have the right to teach science. Since ID is a
legitimate scientific theory, it should be constitutional to discuss in
science classrooms and it should not be banned from schools. If a
science teacher wants to voluntarily discuss ID, she should have
the academic freedom to do so.
For some reason the ID perps keep lying to the rubes about being able to
teach the junk when they won't tell them what can be taught and how to
teach it. Really, Luskin got a PhD in order to lie to the rubes more
effectively, and he updated this pamphlet in 2021 and still did not
include some type of lesson plan that would tell the rubes how IDiocy
should be taught, and what to teach about it. A lesson plan should also
have a materials list on what the teacher will use as teaching material
(textbook, study guides, etc). The ID perps used to claim that Of
Pandas and People could be used to teach the IDiotic junk, but that
ended with Dover, and no replacement ever emerged. The ID perps have
always just run the bait and switch on the rubes, and have never told
them what to teach and how to teach it in this propaganda pamphlet.
The bait and switch had been going down since March 2002, so Luskin
knows that it is the ID perps that need to get over Dover and accept the
reality that they knew existed before the ID scam was exposed as just
what it was and still is. The ID perps were the ones that had decided
that no ID science was ever going to be taught in the public schools
before Dover became an issue. They have known for over 20 years that
there is no ID science worth teaching. Dover only confirmed that for them.
What is the saddest thing about Part 3 is that Luskin Lies about there
being a media "black out" for IDiocy. The reality is that the
creationist ID scam that the creationists came up with when scientific
creationism became known as the failure that it is. It was the ID perps
that started to suppress their own junk. When the ID scam had became
noticed by the public and the rubes started to try to implement the ID
perp's Wedge strategy, the ID perps started the bait and switch scam
that effectively flushed the creationist political efforts, to influence
science education, down the toilet. When it came time to put up or shut
up they started to run the bait and switch instead.
The ID perps became the most effective suppressor of the bogus
creationist political ploys. The creationist rubes would not listen to
the science side of the issue, but when the creationist scam artists
that were selling the stupidity told them not to do it, they usually got
the message (Dover has been the only failure of the bait and switch to
suppress teaching intelligent design science). Most dropped the issue,
but a few like Louisiana bent over for the switch scam, but never liked
it. Louisiana has probably had the bait and switch run on them the most
times (2 additional times after adopting the obfuscation and denial
switch scam). Even though the ID perps tell the rubes that the switch
scam has nothing to do with the creationist ID scam, the rubes can't
help themselves and instead of stick to the switch scam obfuscation and
denial, they have always tried to get creationism taught in the public
It is the ID perps that quickly smash these efforts. The NCSE (National
Center for Science Education) has had so little to do since the bait and
switch started that they have had to broaden their efforts to include
things like global warming denial in order to have something to do.
Really, the ID perps have perpetrated their own media black out by
quickly suppressing any effort to teach creation science in the public
schools. They have produced nothing positive worth any media attention,
and their bait and switch efforts are hardly noticed by the media. The
media might note when some rubes want to teach IDiocy in the public
schools, but that is quickly suppressed by the ID perps, and those
efforts die quickly and do not usually gain more media attention. When
the scam artists that sell you the junk tell you not to teach it, most
rubes get the message and drop the issue. That is how it has been for
the last 20 years.
The ID perps managed to kill off most of the last vestiges of scientific
creationism, and after Dover, managed to shoot themselves in the head,
so there isn't a media black out, just the black out caused by the ID
perps running the bait and switch scam. They keep selling the
nonexistent ID science, and then only give the rubes the obfuscation and
denial switch scam that the scientific creationists had resorted to when
they figured out that there was no creation science that they wanted to
teach. The only goal of the switch scam is to keep the students as
stupidly ignorant as possible. The last thing that the creationist
rubes want their kids to do is learn enough about the issue to be lied
to about what we don't know, yet. This makes the switch scam as
undesirable as it is.
Why should the media cover an effort when the ID perps claim that the
switch scam that they feed the rubes has nothing to do with intelligent
There is no media black out, just no IDiotic science worth reporting.
Phillip Johnson is called the godfather of the creationist ID scam by
the other ID perps. Johnson is credited with developing the Wedge
strategy to get IDiocy taught in the public schools, and Santorum
allowed Johnson to draft the creationist addition to the No Child Left
Behind legislation that the ID perps used to support their efforts to
teach the IDiotic junk. Johnson accepted Dover as the end of the ID
creationist political ploy. He sat in the Dover Court room every day
and watched IDiocy be exposed for what it always had been, and he quit
supporting the teach ID scam. That should tell any competent IDiot just
how much the Teach ID Propaganda pamphlet is worth. It should have
never been written, and obviously should never have kept getting updated.
I also don’t think that there is really a theory of intelligent design
at the present time to propose as a comparable alternative to the
Darwinian theory, which is, whatever errors it might contain, a fully
worked out scheme. There is no intelligent design theory that’s
comparable. Working out a positive theory is the job of the scientific
people that we have affiliated with the movement. Some of them are
quite convinced that it’s doable, but that’s for them to prove…No
product is ready for competition in the educational world.
For his part, Johnson agrees: “I think the fat lady has sung for any
efforts to change the approach in the public schools…the courts are
just not going to allow it. They never have. The efforts to change
things in the public schools generate more powerful opposition than
accomplish anything…I don’t think that means the end of the issue at
all.” “In some respects,” he later goes on, “I’m almost relieved, and
glad. I think the issue is properly settled. It’s clear to me now that
the public schools are not going to change their line in my lifetime.
That isn’t to me where the action really is and ought to be.”
Johnson never retracted these views and died (2019) with this as his
final opinion of the creationist ID scam.
Since the bait and switch started to go down, all the IDiotic science
has been is the bait to attract the creationist rubes and try to get
them to accept the obfuscation and denial switch scam. A switch scam
that the ID perps tell the rubes has nothing to do with ID. That has
been intelligent design's reality for over 20 years. That is the only
future that IDiocy has at this time.
