Amanda Gefter - How to spot a hidden religious agenda

Last month I posted about a New Scientist article by Amanda Gefter reminding us all How to spot a hidden religious agenda. If you visit that NS link now you see this:

New Scientist has received a legal complaint about the contents of this story. At the advice of our lawyer it has temporarily been removed while we investigate. Apologies for any inconvenience.
What? This was good article and deserves to be read by a wide audience, especially in the UK where the ill conceived idea of 'Intelligent Design' is creeping into the science teaching of some schools.

The internet wins again because the article is now re-posted all over. Read it, and beware the next time you open a newspaper, view television, or review your kid's school curriculum. I wait to see who (note the singular) has made the 'legal complaint' and why.
Via everyone in science blogosphere.
