The Vatican has just announced that the theory of Evolution is compatible with the bible according to Archbishop Gianfranco Ravasi, the Vatican's culture minister. Creationism belongs to the "strictly theological sphere" and could not be used "ideologically in science."
Gov. Palin supports teaching both creationism and evolution in schools, her idea of "teach the controversy" is just a back door strategy to promote this discredited pseudoscience.
Intelligent Design has no business in a science classroom, same as alchemy, astrology and wizardry being elevated as alternatives to chemistry, astronomy and physics.
People are entitled to their own beliefs, but that does not give them the right to substitute beliefs for facts and mandate their instruction.
To quote Adam Savage, "I reject your reality and substitute my own."
Its not about your beliefs, but how you go about promoting them.
