I need to vent this one out. As a teacher I find it ridiculous that people in my community are arguing that ID should be taught in our schools. I find myself constantly writing letters to our local paper (which has been printing a lot of "Id in school" opinions and articles) and engaging in conversation whereever this subject comes up.

But the wall of ignorance is UNBREAKABLE!


ID is NOT science....it's creationalism in fake, cheap designer suit! And there is NO WAY I will wear that suit and teach it to my students. It depends on a DESIGNER...hence, the DESIGN part. Accepted scientific theories depend on the evidence to support the hypothesis or prediction. EMPIRICAL EVIDENCE, people!!

Then there are the folk who just say that "we can't prove it's right or wrong." Then you try to explain what an argument from ignorance is and they just keep throwing out the same line.

Sigh...ok...end rant.

I hope when I go back to teaching I will not be met with a rule about teaching this junk science.

Just keep an eye out for the new term which waters down ID even more: Creative Evolution. It is evolution which does not exclude the possibility of a god.

I hope not too, for everyone’s sake. UGH.


I have always wondered if they start letting this in school, if the teachers will be able to then be very critical of the creationist theory. That would be the only good that would come out of it.

I truly don't understand why religion is at all included in our schools.. Why can't it be up to the parents?
