ID Going To Court

The latest from CNN dot com:
"Eleven parents of students at a Pennsylvania high school are suing over the school district's decision to include "intelligent design" -- an alternative to evolution that involves a God-like creator -- in the curriculum of ninth-grade biology classes."
Good for them. It's good to know that at least some people know the difference between science and religion these days. Take a look at this:

"But the American public appears to back the school district.

At least 31 states are taking steps to teach alternatives to evolution. A CBS poll last November found 65 percent of Americans favor teaching creationism as well as evolution while 37 percent want creationism taught instead of evolution."

At least 35% are/were against it. For America, that's not bad.

EVOLUTION = SCIENCE
CREATIONISM = RELIGION
INTELLIGENT DESIGN = CREATIONISM
INTELLIGENT DESIGN + SCIENCE CLASS = A DISRESPECT FOR SCIENCE

Don't teach religion in the science classrom!

Wow! You know, I think your right. Religion shouldn't be taught in science.

So what!!!!! Shouldn't there be a right to learn something other than evolution in school?! Why should only one point of view be taught in school? Tell me? Just because it has so called "scientic" proof? Gimme a break that's just stupid, suing for something so trivial?

I have not problem against ID being taught in school, anonymous, but being taught in the science classroom is a totally different thing. Even you admitted that ID has no scientific basis.

What class other than science class? Religious class? Give me a break schools would be sued if they included a religion class.

They wouldn't get sued if they taught ABOUT religion instead of preaching it, anonymous. And a religion class would be optional, I assume, so if you don't want to take it, don't.

sorry but whether one wants to learn science, or even evolution ain't exactly optional if you wanna move on to the next grade level or even graduate from high school, and your assuming if it's has anything to do with religion it's "preaching," of course unless it's in a history class.

Science is very different than religion, anon. For one thing, there is actually proof to support science's claims, unlike a religious one. Do you think they SHOULDN'T teach science at school?

Now, if I'm not confusing my events (its very possible that I am), I do believe that even the Vatican's science official (I don't remember his formal title) agreed that Creationism should not be taught in the classroom. Its not the proper place. You said it was disrespect towards science, but its also disrespect towards religion. Each should be taught in its proper place. As for your claims, anonymous; I can see what your saying, but I disagree. If only there were some kind of holy book that we could go to that could tell us all about these kinds of Christian things... oh well...

Einstein said, " God does not play dice with the universe." And that's an authority no less than Einstien, in the context of serious sceintific consderation of Heisenburg's Uncertainty Principle. And I quote, from the Britannica Encyclopedia, 1969:He (Einstein) once summed up his general outlook toward the world "God is subltle , but he is not malicious." In order to work out the geometrization of Physics, and all his mind-boggling but neat equations, he had to use as his starting point, mathematics, which as Galieo said , "is the language with which God wrote the universe." You see, it is not irrational even for scientists to presuppose A Mind or "God" in order to progress in the understanding of the world.
