Intelligent Design Book

Through the blog "Nullifidian", I learned of an article in the Sunday Herald, "Rival to Evolution May Enter Schools,":

The Sunday Herald has learned that the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) is considering provision for the theory as part of a review of the science course curriculum.

I would like to make a request of anybody who has written saying that they would like to contribute to my efforts to make the world a better place.

(1) Create a text, appropriate for a 12-year-old, explaining the philosophical problems with "Intelligent Design" - why it is not science, why it is lazy, and why the way some people want to use it risks doing harm.

(2) Create a video, perhaps 5 minutes long, that goes over the highlights of the text.

I have written in the past, I actually do think that intelligent design should be taught in public schools. It should be taught honestly, so that school-age children realize why intelligent people dismiss the theory as vacant, lazy, and harmful. If our population was properly educated on the facts of intelligent design, we would not have to deal with this nonsense of trying to teach it as a legitimate field of study.

Whoever takes up this challenge might want to fit this in somewhere.

You should contact Al @

He has a handful videos on ID and science. I think they fit what you are looking for.

Why Is Evolution So Unpopular?
