Evolution is taught in thousands of high schools all across the country. The United States is a diverse country with people who have many different views on how the world was created. These ideas could be due to religious reasons.
Intelligent Design is a theory that the world was created but not asserting who it was that did the creating.
In school students should be shown both sides of the argument so they can decide for themselves. This develops critical thinking skills. Their science education should not be one sided. When there are multiple views.
Students who don't support the theory of evolution could feel inferior to their peers when in class. That is why students who have different religious or personal beliefs should have the option of being taught Intelligent Design that doesn't contradict their beliefs.
We, the undersigned, call on the United States Department of Education to teach Intelligent Design alongside Evolution in public schools.
The Teach Intelligent Design alongside Evolution in Public Schoools petition to United States Department of Education was written by Valerie King and is in the category Education at GoPetition.
