Its good although I think he has underestimated the argumentativeness of ID proponents. You don't get multiple threads with 100,000+ posts just because someone is arguing that complexity could not evolve - that's just Behe's line. You would also have to destroy the arguments of Dembski, Sanford, Berlinski, and others. Not that this is a bad thing - they are all talking crap - but it is not going to happen in a single lesson or even 10 lessons.

Attacking pseudoscience head on in the classroom would be a good way to teach though!

A valid point since percentage wise there are four times as many historians that are holocaust deniers than there are biologists that are creationists.
