In what antievolution proponents praise as a great victory and scientists and science educators rue as a case of poor judgment, the California Science Center (CSC) has agreed to pay $110,000 to a group that went to court after the center cancelled an agreement to show an antievolution film.

CSC had been sued by the California-based think tank American Freedom Alliance, which alleged that the science center was illegally censoring intelligent design (ID) by cancelling its booking. The settlement, which was announced on Monday, contains no admission of fault on either side. But CSC does agree to pay damages to AFA and invite it to reschedule the event, originally planned for 25 October 2009. AFA has refused the offer.
