Despite his own admittance that the federal government has no real place in educational decisions, Bush stated that he believes that ‘intelligent design’ should be taught in schools. He believes this is needed to “understand what the debate is about“. Why there is debate is beyond me. Evolution, is a scientific theory backed by research and observable, repeatable, verifiable experiment. “intelligent Design” is nothing more than creationism tarted up like a cheap whore and given what appears to be a politically correct name, hence, it is not science. If a school is offering a course on religion “intelligent Design” can be taught there, along side African Animist beliefs, Wiccan beliefs, and Zoroastrianism.
