Last time I checked Intelligent Design has not been proven. Science can not and will never prove the existance of God.
Macro evolution has been observed in fossils. Intelligent Design has been observed in nothing. What theory would you like to learn your children to make them objectively thinking and well informed humans? I hope not the unproven 'just accept it' intelligent design theory.
Galileo was treated that way because he threatened the power of religion. The same religion that supports intelligent design.

Have you ever thought that Science may become a sort of religion in which if you disagree with what is comfortable you will be treated the same way Galileo was? What about Dr. Atkins for example. He was ridiculed for well on 20 years before people began to listen to him. Now the atkins diet is the craze. Just think about how you are so hell bent to prove that evolution is the only way and you refuse to open your mind to another possiblility. You have been taught evolution as a fact and even though I explain to you the theory of Intelligent Design using the same science you still beleive evolution to be a fact.
