"you say you want a devolution"

How does that John Lennon song go...

The Senate takes up the nomination of Samuel Alito to the Supreme Court next week which leads one to wonder how it is that those who make the most noise about "intelligent design," otherwise known as Creationism, and strongly favor an alternative way to look at the theory of evolution at the same time actively and aggressively put forth theories, and try to strip away constitutional protections, eagerly working , in effect, towards devolution. So, we now have evolutionists and devolutionists. One doesn't have to be a quick study to see which side of the fence Judge Alito happens to find himself on. The question is which side of the fence (defense?) will we find ourselves on when those who believe in evolution where it comes to social change only take control of what, in our system of checks and balances, was meant to be the ultimate check and balance to executive power, the Supreme Court. Caveat emptor, sooner or later, the empire will strike back!
