The Intelligent Design movement have gone to the courts to force popular satirical news site, The Spoof, to put Spoofs that ridicule evolution and promote creationism into the Science and Technology section along side items that ridicule Creationism.
"It is not acceptable that pro-Evolution articles are allowed into the Science And Technology section, whilst anti-Evolution articles are put straight into the bin," said spokesman for the Discovery Institute, Michael Beye. "We will be bringing the full weight of the law down on the Spoof to force them to ridicule evolution alongside ridiculing Quantum Physics and homoeopathy."
Mark Lowton, editor of the Spoof, was laid back about the Discovery Institutes's accusations.
"I say bring it on," he said from his technological bunker deep beneath the extinct Lancaster Volcano. "We've been allowing ID propaganda pieces on the Spoof for years. Sometimes, they're even amusing."
Lawyers acting on behalf of the Spoof have displayed dozens of spoofs with an ID slant.
"All we can imagine," said Henry Forck, from Nife, Forck and Spune Solicitors in Lancaster, "is that people who follow the Intelligent Design faith struggle to read simple pieces of information and take it on board in the way that it was intended. They have grown so accustomed to trying to find the holes in anything science based that they've lost the ability to understand what they're reading."
Nife, Forck and Spune have sent five years worth of Science and Technology Spoofs through to the Discovery Institute, highlighting those that are ID based.
Even with all the evidence presented to them, the Discovery Institute are pressing ahead with their suit, proving once and for all that the Intelligent Design community pick and choose which evidence they take on-board, and that they will quite happily discard any evidence that does not suit their world view.
