    Yes, in an optional class that students could elect to take. Not as a required course, nor as a science credit.

    Edit:

    I wrote the above before the poll was up. It wouldn't be in a Judeao-Christian religion class, since it is not in the bible or any of the accepted J/C texts. It would need to be a separate course.

    In the most generic sense. "A designer of unknown value keeps making anything 'too complex' to come into bing naturally."

    I say go for it but not in a christianity class. There should be a non-denominatial religion class in public school covering everything from cults to new age to the big three. It'd go a long way to helping people understand each other.

    I'm fine with it being in a class alongside various creation myths of the world, but they have to include the "turtles-all-the-way-down" theory, and the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

    Actually they should have a class called "Completely Made-Up ****"and teach as much Intelligent Design as they want.

    ID is a copout for the religious. They can claim some sort of scientific all-faith sort of hackjob theory, and then try to push for recognition. Intelligent Design is not a creation myth, and is not folklore, at least not the way they teach it.

    One of the main characteristics of folklore is that it is not transferred through official means (ie school). ID is the exact opposite--it is designed to be taught in schools. Its ideology is based on folklore, of course, but Intelligent Design itself is not folklore. The myths and legends of a religion are folklore, and are perfectly legitimate as subject matter for folklore courses. ID, as a non-folk entity, has no place in a folklore course.

    I most certainly believe that people should take folklore courses, not just because it would keep them from being stupid enough to think their one way of thinking is the right one, but because a solid understanding of folklore helps give a better understanding of society and people as a whole. However, since Intelligent Design is not in the realm of folklore, it has no role in a folklore course. Nor does it have a place in a science course, as it is not science, either.

    Therefore, Intelligent Design deserves no place in any academic setting.

    Where the hell do you still find schools that have religion classes?

    I think ID should be taught simultaneously with the history of Gandalf and the other Istari...
