THE ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY, VERY, VERY, LAST THING I HAVE TO SAY ABOUT ID AND EVOLUTION

Many, many years ago, I had a high school history teacher who insisted that he didn't believe in dinosaurs - no matter how seriously we students argued about the fossil record, scientific studies, and the skeletons we had seen in museums, he would blithely reply that it all could be a hoax (pointing out correctly that most of the museum displays we saw with our own eyes were plaster casts and reconstructions, painted to look "fossily"). It was only years later that I realized what Mr Poulos was up to - he was forcing us to think about how we evaluate evidence and decide what is true - which authorities we choose to believe and why. I think a clever teacher could very well use ID as a foil to settled evolution theories to help students grasp how we come to believe things are "true". Unfortunately, I don't believe proponents of ID are really expecting it to be presented by clever teachers.
