Intelligent Design Goes on Trial

From a story posted on the CNN website:

Eight families within the Dover Area School District (Pa.) say the district's policy of exposing students to the Intelligent Design Theory promotes the Bible's view of creation, violating the constitutional separation of church and state. The rural school district of about 3,500 students argues that it is not endorsing any religious view and is merely giving ninth-grade biology classes a glimpse of differences over evolution. The trial is expected to last about five weeks.

    This is absolute junk, that this is a 'violation of the separation of church and state'. First off, our founding fathers didn't even consider separation of church and state to being something like this. What they intended was to be independent of established churches, that's right, its called independence, it's celebrated on the fourth of July. Therefore intelligent design should equally have the same right to be taught as Evolutionism. After all evolutionism is almost completely false (that is why is called a theory, not a fact), it can be proven wrong about anything it brings, by science, not the fairy tale that needs time as this solution to prove anything. This hocus pocus science that supports this theory, is no different than Intelligent design (in most peoples' senses). Therefore Intelligent design, just like Evolutionism, can be taught in schools.
