Woah, woah, people....I am a staunch evolutionist and a biology teacher....I teach ID right alongside of Evolution. Kind of like teaching Lamarckian views next to Darwinian views. Here's how it works, while I introduce the Unit on Evolution I mention that ID exists and is patently wrong and i tell the students why. I then teach evolution for 4 weeks. I also mention evolution so frequently during other units of the school year that my students notice if I do not mention it for a day. To summarize: ID gets it's due (two sentences) alomngside Evolution which gets the rest of the 90 minute a day periods for 184 days. THAT IS EQUAL TIME.
