Intelligent Design vs Evolution

There have been recent discussions in parts of the States about introducing students to Intelligent Design (ID) in their science classes, as well as evolution. As we all know, evolution is the idea that we are related to the apes, and that we as a species have evolved over time. Intelligent Design is the idea that there is one greater being, such as a god, who is controlling our destiny and the world around us.

The fact that Intelligent Design is not testable, scientific fact, does not seem to be putting off the school boards. This recent article in The Register, is proof of how bad things have become. Since when should a school board be able to determine what is and isn't science?

But my personal favourite has always been the letter that Bobby Henderson wrote to the Kansas School Board. I'm off to order an FSM mug...
