Show Me the Science

Daniel Dennett has an op-ed in the New York Times concerning "Intelligent Design".

The salient point: Other than crackpots, nobody doubts quantum theory or relativity, despite the fact that they have a hard time understanding it. In contrast, evolution presents a fundamental problem for those who don't understand it - it removes one of the best reasons we have for believing in God. Those who can't adapt their beliefs to include evolution must therefore attempt to discredit evolution. And, with the vast majority of Americans making due with high school science, it's not a difficult job.
