I believe Darwin's theory is scientifically sound, but that scientists and others looking for authority, use it in a Malthusian indifference to humanity.
Hence intelligent design, that assigns human beings great dignity and a soul, although scientifically flawed, is a moral right. It is not necessarily science, but it is an important side of any debate upon our origins. Darwin was a believing Christian. As long as it is a debate on any front in a classroom setting, it is in some sense academic enough while it may belong in the notion of the history of science.
The entire picture of my argument is that we are human beings, and our future depends upon our understanding of a soul and a spirit assigning great value to us. It is that versus a humanity without a soul akin to insects tearing out a living in a hostile world in which reasonable safety is an illusion.

I would like to see school systems expose children to all reasonable explanations for any theory, its a shame it has to be legislated like this.
I can't help picturing how issues like this were settled 10,000 years ago, the guy with the biggest club won the argument back then, the guy with the best lawyer wins the argument now.....is that evolution or intelligent design ?
