Demonstrate it's scientific first, then we can talk about teaching it as anything more than a myth.

What a moron. What's worse, "scienceteacher" in the comments is saying he's a Christian and teaches evolution, but man was still poofed into existence and definitely NEVER evolved. He says he's a SCIENCE TEACHER. So, science is science, except when it contradicts his particular interpretation of his favorite religious text. Being a different kind of equivocating jackass doesn't keep him from being an equivocating jackass.

Apparently none of the "ID is not inherently religious" pundits have heard of the Wedge document nor the evolution of the book "Of Pandas and People".

...and Phillip Johnson (one of the founders of the intelligent design movement, principal architect of the Wedge Strategy, author of the Santorum Amendment, one of the ID movement's most prolific authors and co-founder and program advisor of the Discovery Institute's Center for Science and Culture)... has come out and said:

"We are taking an intuition most people have (the belief in God) and making it a scientific and academic enterprise. We are removing the most important cultural roadblock to accepting the role of God as creator."

"Our strategy has been to change the subject a bit so that we can get the issue of intelligent design, which really means the reality of God, before the academic world and into the schools."

"This isn't really, and never has been a debate about science. It's about religion and philosophy."
