I would like to see the reference for this assertion. Especially since
the judge specifically disallowed the introduction of scientific evidence
relevant to the issue of creationism vs. scientific views of life's origins.

The judge made it clear that the only question before the court was
whether or not the ban against teaching evolution had been broken.

I think that the above-quoted post nicely illustrates how, in their
haste, creationists fudge around the edges to make a point. (And that is
putting it diplomatically.)
