Now It's "Intelligent Design"

I'm reading this article about a school district in Pennsylvania that wants to teach Intelligent Design as an alternative to evolutionary theory.
Okay, I may be a little unreasonable about this, but I think you need to answer one simple question: can anything be proven? It comes down to whether you believe that the universe is billions of years old, that fossils have been carbon-dated back millions of years, and that commonalities in DNA demonstrate an evolutionary chain hypothesized by Darwin OR that this entire universe was created over the course of a week just a few thousand years ago.
Listen, I want to be fair and magnanimous about this... If you honestly believe that there's no such thing as global warming, that smoking doesn't cause cancer, and that the human race was designed by an omniscient and omnipotent creator go ahead and teach that to your children. Just keep them away from me because they're going to be stupid.

Anyone who thinks religious theories should be taught in public schools should ask themselves how they'd feel if the government forced the big bang down their gauntlets.
