Intelligent Design debate continues..

Intelligent Design Debate

Ok, I can’t quite understand what the big deal is about id (intelligent design).  Somebody help me here!  What could possibly be wrong with teaching an alternative to the theory of evolution?  (Yes, evolution is one of several theories of the origin of the world…having no one on the planet who has observed the phenomenon of the world’s beginning we are only speculating.)  I’m no scientist, but id deals with probability, i.e. what is the probability that the universe what created via the process of time + chance versus the probability that an intelligent designer created this whole thing we call the universe.  

Ok, so what’s the deal?  Just tell the young kiddies that some people think that id is a good idea and leave it at that.  Is that so threatening?  In the above story id was taught as part of a philosophy course.
The origins of the earth are not just a “scientific” study.  There are philosophical and religious issues that go hand in hand with it.  I get a bit perplexed by supposed scientists who turn a blind eye to this reality and pretend to be “objective” and “unbiased.”  Absolutely ridiculous!  Hey, just keep it real, man.  That’s all I’m asking.
