A court in the US has ruled against teaching Intelligent design as fact

BBC news article


This case has been interesting to follow, and I believe the court ruled correctly. Teaching Intelligent design is practically the same as teaching Creationism and so not a science, I think learning about this should be kept to the religious studies classes and definitely not the sciences.

what are your views on the ruling?

Why teach just one theory?

Why not encourage pupils to think for themselves by teaching a number of theories?

We were taught Intelligent design in RE studies at school, but biology only taught evalution as fact..

Theres not a problem with teaching more than one theory. The only thing is in the science classes the evidence behind the facts have to be there, even recently we've found changes in the human genome within the past 50,000 years, supporting the Darwinian theory.
Look here
If there were other theories based on known evidence i'm sure they would also be taught in science

What real evidence, like this, does ID have that can be taught in a science class, before the ruling it was being taught in a biology lesson as fact!
