ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the significance of Intelligent Design (ID) in schools of the U.S. ID is just creationism with a container load of aluminum siding tacked on. One of the logic wedges Intelligent Designers like to jump onto with both semantic feet is the fact that scientist Charles Darwin called his discovery "The Theory of Evolution." The theory of ID maintains life on Earth is too complex to have developed through evolution. Back in the seventeenth century, scientist Galileo proposed the Earth revolved around the sun, not the other way around, and was promptly convicted of heresy and imprisoned for the rest of his life at a time when home detention did not include even halfway decent satellite reception. In response to his pardon from the Catholic Church 400 years later, Galileo conveniently was unavailable for comment.
