Theocracy in America?

The "theory" of Intelligent Design attacks Darwinism well enough, but it lacks scientific credibility of its own. The main thought behind it is that the universe is too complex to have happened by accident. Its followers will be forever searching to uncover a master. The problem is that this will never happen because any master outside our known universe would be supernatural, and his existence could not be proven through science.

Intelligent Design is nothing more than a Trojan horse used for inserting right-wing religious values into the classroom. If you don't believe me, remember what the U.S. military did to recruit soldiers for the war in Iraq.

Besides that, it will break down logic in our youth, as if we didn't already have enough of that without the federal government's help. The only reason youths are immature and unable to lead is because we teach them to be that way.

I don't know about you, but I want my future to be in good hands.
