Evolution vs. Creationism, Redux (6 Letters) - New York Times

"To the Editor:

While 'The Evolution of Creationism' (editorial, May 17) is basically sound, I beg that you please, please, please stop referring to 'intelligent design' as a 'theory.'

It is not a theory. It is not even a hypothesis. It is not testable. It is not falsifiable. It is not science.

Hear! Hear!

Intelligent design is not science. It should not be taught in science class.
