The problem is that you keep interjecting the notion that intelligent design should be considered a scientific theory and therefore should be taught in science classes as a viable alternative to evolution.

I think you misunderstand both me and ID. First, while I consider ID a scientific theory, I don't care if it is taught in high school biology class or not. But since it is science (IMO), then it should be allowed if a teacher wants to discuss it.

And about the viable alternative to evolution part, ID is not in competition with evolution, in an all-or-nothing kind of way, at least not in the minds of its major proponents (Dembski, Behe, Wells, Meyers). As far as I can tell they have all acknowledged that evolution theory is partially correct.
