Intelligent design vs. Evolution

You would have imagined that the place for Intelligent design would be in a schools Religous Education curriculum. Oh well some of the rather stupidly religious and blank minded members of Dover Area School in Pennsylvania, USA changed the rules and made it compulsory for the students to be taught about ID before being taught about Evolution (in a Biology class).

A few days back I even read about Vatican saying that ID had its place in christian explaination of the world and that it should not be taken as a science. I agree there are lot of religions and how far would the board go... accomodate a chapter for each religions version of ID !!! oh well thats a thought... but there's no place for it in Biology class...
In the latest battle, a federal judge said Tuesday that 'Intelligent design is a religious alternative masquerading as a scientific theory and cannot be mentioned in biology classes in a Pennsylvania public school district'
