Hey, I personally stand for Intelligent Design. But that aside, my understanding of the ID case is that it’s not explicitly Christian or even Biblically based. It’s not a theory of “intelligent design of the Christian (Biblical) God” but merely, “intelligent design” so if you truly believe in an intelligent flying spaghetti monster (ignoring the sarcasm), I pose a question for you: “Why don’t you support the ID movement?” Afterall, your theory of FSM would be a form of ID. Correct? But since you don’t truly believe in the FSM and the very point I made would probably be made in court, it should be obvious your ploy can’t go far. Even on the grounds of “separation of church and state” since no specific church is ever implied. You seem to be an active man, politically involved and (if your stance is an honest one) support the teaching of truth. So I ask you to put aside political prejudices for a moment and think honestly. While you and many brilliant scientists believe in evolution, I and many brilliant scientists (like Allan Rex Sandage) do not. So in the educational and intellectual fields shouldn’t all VALID and SUBSTANTIATED theories be taught, or do you wish to indoctrinate students and ultimately bring yourself to the level of tyrants and dictators? I don’t write you in anger or spite, but rather as a fellow American citizen asking that you please put your contempt aside and allow our educational system to serve the purpose it should in a democratic or republican country. That is, free of personal agendas and not biased to one particularly belief system over another. Thanks for your time.
