It is scary how anyone who even mentioned intelligent design in the academic university level world was ostracized. How can it not be allowed to even be theorized on and given as a possibility for life...in a free world. The problem with pure evolutionist is that they do not believe in intelligent design guiding the process and both theories have a right to be presented to the learner.

I believe the Church accepts the concept of intelligent design only as God guiding the natural evolutionary process, not the absurd version fundies try to impose on our school system. Science is science, it has no atheistic (or any) agenda. IT is merely a new word for Creationism, which has been debunked long ago- and does have an agenda. Do we want to see developing countries surpass us in education? Do we want our children and grandchildren to be competitive in the sciences, or do we want our education system to be the laughing stock of the world?

It is one thing to demonstrate, say, that finch's beaks have changed over time; not even hard line creationists dispute that type of change (or microevolution).
It is quite another to actually show evidence, including an adequate mechanism, that lizards evolved into birds. I recommend "Evolution: A Theory in Crisis" by Michael Denton.
And I recommend anyone who has not seen this movie yet to do so. Further, it's actually the evolutionists themselves in the film who equate evolution with atheism, stating evolution is what helped them to become atheists in the first place.

I think Stein's problem is the same (in a sense) That Dinesh D'Souza has with the theory. D'Souza believes that Darwin's theory is certainly valid, but finds fault with Darwinism, which he views as outright atheism, going above and beyond what Darwin ever considered. (Though D'Souza is more skeptical of Intelligent design.)
I do think the reaction to Stein's film is demonstrating his point though.
