I.D. lawsuit in Michigan

Parents in Richland Michigan are threatening to sue their school board after two teachers slipped ID creationism into the school board curriculum.

They quietly taught intelligent design alongside evolution for two years until a parent complained last fall. Then the administration told them to stop teaching the theory while a committee, including the two teachers, studied whether it belonged in the curriculum.

ID proponents claim that the theory does not speculate about the identity of the designer, so it does not teach Creationism or religion. ID does, however, speculate about the origin of the universe without support of scientific evidence. No matter how they try to mask their agenda, this 'loophole' doesn't make it legitimate science.
