Good ID discussion at Pharyngula

Pharyngula has recently had some excellent posts discussing various attempts to supplement or replace the teaching of biological evolution in schools with ID (Intelligent Design). Today he beautifully summed up why ID shouldn't be taught as science:

"The reason that Intelligent Design creationism should be kept out of the schools is not that there is an a priori bias against it; it is not because evolutionary theory is weak and needs protection; it is not because scientists hate Christians. It is because there is no evidence for it."
