Hey, I Just Want My Kid to Know There Are Choices

This is a great piece written by Rhinehold for So basically, look, scientists can't be trusted with their fancy logic and so-called standards of research. Because of this, a group is lobbying for a new theory to be taught in school science classes:

A new theory for the creation of the universe has been developed and subsequently named ‘Unintelligent Design’. While the theory is new it is only slightly more recent than the increasingly discussed theory by the similar name ‘Intelligent Design’. Followers of the new theory are hoping to petition school boards across the country to teach this theory alongside Evolution and Intelligent Design and are hoping that the supporters of other similar origin science theories support their right to be included in our children’s educational curriculum.

The idea behind the theory is simple, ' There is simply too many things in the universe that don't fit together or make sense'. Because of these irregularities the belief supports one of the two following options:

1)There is no sentient being who created the universe because if there were such an individual he would have to be very powerful and by his very nature smart enough not to make such mistakes

2)There is a sentient being but he is not all knowing and instead just lucky that things have worked out as well as they have despite his incompetence.

You see, I shouldn't have to let some 'scientist' tell me what science is and is not. Unintelligent Design proponents know they are fighting an uphill battle against these tyranical head-in-the-clouds, so-called, intellectuals who are totally out of touch with the mainstream. It is for this reason, the Unintelligent Design backers are looking to form a coalition:

We are joining with in the struggle to seek institutional objectivity in origins science. And we believe that they will join us in ensuring that all sides of the issue are represented fairly in our public schools.”
The Creationists will revel in this opportunity to gain such a large number of supporters in their crusade. "Finally," they will say, "another group that gets it." I encourage you to write to your local school board and tell them that you want fair representation of all ideas in your child's science class.
