“Let no man out of weak conceit of sobriety, or an ill-applied moderation, think or maintain, that a man can search too far or be too well-studied in the book of God’s word, or in the book of God’s works; divinity or philosophy; but rather let men endeavor an endless progress or proficiency in both.” Charles Darwin
Intelligent Design (ID) cannot be mentioned in biology classes in Dover, PA public school district, a U.S. District Judge John E. Jones III ruled in 2005, ruling in one of the biggest courtroom clashes on evolution since the 1925 Scopes trial.
The creationists or the Intelligent Design people are pursuing a political agenda, so the truth escapes them. They fail to realize that Intelligent Design thesis cannot be called a branch of science and therefore cannot be taught in science classes but can and should be taught in religion and philosophy classes.
The author is a devout deist and a theist, like many of the Founding Fathers of USA, but unlike creationists and followers of the Intelligent Design movement, strongly believes that the God of Abrahamic faiths works only through laws of nature and there are no supernatural interventions.
