"About time ID is relegated to the realm of occultism where it belongs."

I think ID should be taught in public school as an alternative. I don't know in what class or in what capacity or in what way. I guess I really don't care either way.

But every time I read a response like the above, I sense fear in those who are so against ID. Not those who have a rational argument against ID, but those who feel that they have to resort to hyperbole.

In fact, it is ironic that naturalists have now become like the old creationists when it come to public schools. The creationists of old did everything they could to keep evolution out of schools out of fear of a new idea.
If ID is nonsense as you believe, it will ultimately fail. As always the superior idea will prevail. School is all about searching and expanding one's knowledge, not "hiding" other ideas.

So I ask, what do you fear?
