      How exciting! Arriving before a working theory and research based on it:

      "It's brand new and launching today! Discovering Intelligent Design
      (DID) is the first full curriculum to present the scientific evidence
      for intelligent design in both cosmology and biology in an
      easy-to-understand format. The curriculum includes a textbook, a
      workbook, and a DVD with multimedia video clips that are integrated
      into the readings. Developed by home school educators Gary and Hallie
      Kemper, and Discovery Institute research coordinator Casey Luskin, DID
      uniquely fills a specific niche in the intelligent design literature."

      Their 'disclaimer' in the introduction:
      <<<As a matter of public policy, Discovery Institute opposes any
      effort to require the teaching of intelligent design by school
      districts or state boards of education. Attempts to mandate teaching
      about intelligent design only politicize the theory and will hinder
      fair and open discussion of the merits of the theory among scholars
      and within the scientific community. Furthermore, most teachers at the
      present time do not know enough about intelligent design to teach
      about it accurately and objectively. Instead of mandating intelligent
      design, Discovery Institute seeks to increase the coverage of
      evolution in textbooks. It believes that evolution should be fully and
      completely presented to students, and they should learn more about
      evolutionary theory, including its unresolved issues.>>>

      Soooooo, DI created a "full curriculum to present the scientific
      evidence for intelligent design in both cosmology and biology in an
      easy-to-understand format" that "includes a textbook, a workbook, and
      a DVD with multimedia video clips that are integrated into the
      readings" but they "[oppose] any effort to require the teaching of
      intelligent design by school districts or state boards of education".

      In otherwords, DI says that ID is science.
      The issue is that only science should be taught in the science classroom.
      DI says they oppose ID being taught in the science classroom.
