if it's so stupid, why are they afraid to teach it?
I don't see fear, Skeptic; I see "What the **** does this have to do with science?"
If you want to change the situation, here's what you have to do: Come up with a testable hypothesis that explains what "God" is and how it created the universe. Not only will you have science; you might even get the Nobel Prize.
Now, if you'll excuse Me, I have some course materials to write up for some of the other ID units:
- Ancient cosmology of the Indus Valley: Which came first, the Cosmic Chicken or the Cosmic Egg?
- Tiamat versus Marduk: Was the singularity a large Mesopotamian dragon, and the Big Bang a very pointy sword?
- A Norse is a Norse, of course of course: Auðhumbla the Giant Cow as Prime Moover
