From the Wikipedia archives for Talk:IntelligentDesign: “It just seems from the tone of this article that the authors are trying to imply that the Discovery Institute and all associated with it are involved in a conspiracy to lie to the public to get a theocracy established in the US.”
Ummm…the authors are not “trying to imply” that. They are saying that. Like everything in Wikipedia, it’s backed by reliable sources. Specifically, the Wedge document clearly outlines the conspiracy. Unlike other conspiracy-proving documents, the Discovery Institute (originators of the term “Intelligent Design”) hasn’t even bothered protesting the authenticity of those documents (and they have been used in court in the Kitzmiller case, and the opposing legal team did not attempt to prove it fraudalent). Yes, when there are reliable sources for “a conspiracy to lie to the public to get a theocracy established in the US” (I guess it depends on what you call a theocracy — but certainly a conspiracy to violate the Establishment clause in the 1st amendment, which arguably could be called a theocracy), then wikipedia is bound to explain it as such.
