ABSTRACT
This article explains the rationale behind the intelligent design theory. Courts have repeatedly ruled that teaching creationism in public schools is an unconstitutional promotion of a religious viewpoint. In response, new guises for old ideas have been invented. Creationism began as biblical literalism, evolved into creationism and then creation science. The newest resurrection calls itself intelligent design (ID) theory. verified through experiment or scientific methods and are not subject to being discarded or modified if evidence shows where they are wrong. The ID/creationist's goal is to insert a narrow interpretation of the Bible into the U.S. public schools and claim it is science. It is a move to impose religious beliefs on the curriculum and as such it is vigorously anti-science and anti-intellectual.
