Re: And Should it be Taught in Our Schools?
ID is just Creationism with a new name and a botched face lift. It is not disguised as science because it does not even resemble science. It is a warped caricature of science. ID has no theory that can make predictions or be tested. The whole purpose behind ID is to attack a bogus definition of the Theory of Evolution. You cannot use ID to carry out scientific inquiry.

The only useful place it has in the classroom is as an example of pseudo-science.

Throwing the whole thing out looks like a convenient way of avoiding challenging questions about evolution.

Studying the processes of evolution and the Theory of Evolution is the way understand challenging questions about evolution. Scientist want to answer the challenging questions about evolution. That is what makes it fun! ID does not provide answers to challenging questions about evolution. ID says the answer to all questions is God did it! That's a big help!
