Oh, so we're teaching that Ptah created the universe and put Ra in charge of Earth, who in turn created live, and humanity. Cool beans.

Actually we are waiting for that Theory of Intelligent Design. Hopefully it will have made it through the peer review process by next school year. Perhaps the one after? Well soon, anyway....

Well really, how long would it take to teach this?

Some people believe, in the abscence of any proof whatsoever, that some mythical being created a design for everything in the universe. Class over...

actually, you could also cover all religions factually in about 30 seconds.

You'd be amazed at how long it takes some people just to understand what "god dun it" means in English.:P

Hopefully they do require it. I already have the lesson plan mapped out.

Day 1
8:00am to 8:01am: Begin discussion of ID with students. Let them know it is bullshit and has nothing to do with science. End discussion of ID with students.

8:01am to end of semester: Teach science.

I understand what you're proposing....and in a way I kind of agree.

But my fear is that even *IF* they "teach" ID in the manner you suggest, even the mere mention of ID/Creationism in a public school classroom will legitimize it in a small way.

IMHO, it's best just to ignore the bullshit that ID/Creationism is, and just teach REAL science in science class.

Science and the Scientific method are all that belong in a class room. Intelligent design is not Science. IT's a cute way of making religious schlock appear to be scientific but it is not science. Intelligent Design is garbage. Teach it in church if it is so awesome.

The theory of Evolution has been used in a great deal of medical science, and working with that theory it has been shown to be an accurate hypothesis all the way down to DNA research. It is a good theory, even though it does not mention God.

I had an advance textbook copy of "Of Pandas and People" from my friend who is a elementary school asst. principal. FL allowed these people to come in and pass out their crap to school administrators for evaluation. NO one in education beleives this is science or needs to be taught in school.
Don't allow a beauracrat inbetween you and your doctor, but be sure to let them deceide what your kid needs to learn in school.
The GOP should go back to what they do best, whatever the hell that is.

This is by far the DUMBEST argument in politics.
