Intelligent Design in Colorado schools? *PLEASE* tell me it isn’t so!
I was shocked and horrified that the state legislature is actually going to discuss whether or not Intelligent Design should be taught in Colorado schools. Intelligent friggin’ Design! When exactly did our education system slip back in time 80 years? Fortunately, hopefully, the Democratic majority in the state congress will quickly vote this down. But just the fact that it is being discussed at all is scary.
I would not have a problem if ID were being taught as a philosophy or religion course, and if it were looked at critically. Give opposing viewpoints, and discussing strenghts and weaknesses. But taught as a science course? Nuh-uh. No way.
ID is not science! It’s religious doctrine with a psuedo-scientific presentation. It has no place in the science curricula of public schools.
