Some testimony from Margaret Weisenfelder:
Q. I’m trying to understand why you feel [ID is] a religious viewpoint, not a scientific viewpoint.
A. I’m really not — I’m not clear on the distinction. I’m not well versed in the idea of intelligent design. … I’m not an expert in any of this. (33:9-19)
Q. And your understanding of intelligent design what’s that based on?
A. Just my own surmise.
Q. Okay. It’s not based on any literature, is it?
A. No, it’s not. (April 3, 2012, PM, 239:1-11)
