You have an unproven, hysterical theory that teaching ID alongside Darwinism will widen the [science education] gap further.

I would suggest that you also campaign for astrology to be taught in sociology and psychology classes. Astrology definitely has something to say about why people behave the way they do that is adds a different perspective to what the professional community in these disciplines accepts, so introducing astrology into these classes would defintely accomplish critical examination of the gullibly swallowed mainstream theories. Behe said in Dover that the changes in science curricula standards that ID movement suggests also would allow astrology into the science classroom, so why not try the opposite tack, get astrology into the classroom and ID can follow on its coattails. Astrology doesn't have all the political baggage of the natural selection/design controversy and would be an easier foot in the door I would think. It seems like the ID movement is missing out on a wonderful opportunity here.
