I’m pleased to see this statement being made as I’ve heard and read a lot about so called “intelligent design” lately as well as “creationism”. ID, as if giving the term an acronym makes it more acceptable, is one of the most laughable ideas I have heard in a long time. Darwinism as a theory may not offer all the answers but at least rigourous scientific methods are being used to drive it forward. There is, of course, the chance that Darwinism and the theory of evolution are wrong but at least its subscribers are prepared to admit this.
The Royal Society were one of the bodies who endorsed the statement on the teaching of evolution and issued a press release on the matter. Their web site is very interesting and well worth visiting to find out about scienctific matters and issues of the day.
