I'd actually prefer that kids be allowed to learn about Creationism/Intelligent-Design, preferably in a comparative religions course. But the idea of FORCING them to learn this stuff as science really is an attempt to try to supplant science, that great attempt at resolving society's moral contradictions and injustices, through some communion with reality, with a return to the downwards, backwards spiral of control and rebellion. It is an attempt to cheat. It is an example and encouragement for children to cheat, on their own self-control and independence.

thank you. that's what i say. this is in no way shape or form a scientific argument they're trying to make--it's philosophical and it's decidedly of a religious bent. ok, granted, it's philosophy regarding science, but then, so is the flying spaghetti monster. personally, i'd love to sit in on a class discussing that!!! =D

Ha ha ha! Yes, it's actually metaphysics, in my opinion.

I've alread studied the flying spaghetti monster, and I'd say don't waste your money. It's just some thing made in Japan, copying Quezacotl, or the Easter Island bird man cult, or something.

i just find it endlessly entertaining that it says 'pastafarians' end prayers with the word 'ramen' instead of 'amen'.

then again, i've frequently been accused of being too easily entertained. =p
