How ironic that Richard Lucas will consider the opinions “of scientists, engineers, information theorists and mathematicians” in assessing evolution (Letters, 30 December).
An overwhelming majority of such people accept evolution and reject intelligent design, and it was the testimony of such that helped influence the American judge Mr Lucas dismisses.
As America’s National Centre for Science Education has hilariously shown, PhD scientists named “Steve” alone outnumber all Intelligent Design-sympathetic ones combined. Lucas has just scored a spectacular own-goal.
