Question and answer
what is the debate over evolution and intelligent design? How does accounting for both sides of the debate affect education
Intelligent design is the belief that all things natural were too complex for anything to have made them but some higher power- an "intelligent designer". Evolution is the belief that species of life developed scientifically.

Handled intelligently and reasonably, the debate between evolution (the theory that life evolved by random mutation and natural selection) and intelligent design (the view that life is the product of intelligent plan by a higher being or designer) could be an exciting catalyst for students to learn how science works and what its limitations are. But, sadly, schools typically do not teach subjects intelligently and reasonably. So the subject is culturally divisive rather than educationally and intellectually useful. This is particularly sad because some of the best of what can be said on both sides was written clearly and beautifully more than 200 years ago and could easily serve as the foundation for teaching about the nature of science, the nature of rationality, and the nature of thought.
