Why Intelligent Design is a Relevant Topic in Biology Class

The following paragraph is from a new article I just published: Allowing Religion in Public School.

"Any thorough discussion of evolutionary theory will touch on what makes it of such scientific and historical importance: namely, that it explains how the appearance of design was created in the absence of a designer. This naturally involves our ideas about design, designers, and how the complexity of life can be misleading. Indeed, the tendency for people to think of life as the result of a designer is so widespread, I cannot imagine how discussing it in a biology classroom would be out of place or a waste of time."

Here are a couple more articles I recently wrote on the topic:

"Is Intelligent Design a Science?"

"The Best Case for Intelligent Design"
