ID & Creationism  
I'm reading about the decision in the Pennsylvania "Intelligent Design" case ( http://www.sciohost.org/ncse/kvd/kitzmiller_decision_20051220.pdf ). Seems I was wrong about Intelligent Design. I thought it was some sort of directed evolution thing and that they were mixing up words and their problem was with natural selection and randomness, rather than evolution (evolution is change, Darwin did not come up with the idea of evolution, he came up with a theory to explain it). But it looks like it is creationism:

In early pre-Edwards drafts of Pandas, the term "creation" was defined as "various forms of life that began abruptly through an intelligent agency with their distinctive features intact – fish with fins and scales, birds with feathers, beaks, and wings, etc," the very same way in which ID is defined in the subsequent published versions.

Pandas being Of Pandas and People, the text book IDists suggest students read.
