No, no, no, no, no. NO! Dammit.

There is nothing intelligent about Intelligent Design. It is not science. It is religion trying to dress up as science. And for the President of the United States to come out and state that theories of Evolution and Intelligent Design should be taught side by side in public schools is the height of ignorance. Intelligent Design is not science. It is religion. Religion, Religion, Religion. It is Christian Creationism. It is Biblical. It is NOT science.

The President says, “I think that part of education is to expose people to different schools of thought.” “You’re asking me whether or not people ought to be exposed to different ideas, the answer is yes.”

THEN GO TO SUNDAY SCHOOL!

How the hell do we maintain a competitive edge in the scientific world when the most powerful man in the world sees no problem in calling Creationism a science?

Update: Pharyngula is pissed about it, too. Lend him some support.
