Here's a note to all creationists or supporters of "Intelligent Design". Develop a cohesive theory and put it through the scientific method. Don't just try to legislate it into schools. Science is a meritocracy, not a democracy. Creationism may be supported by a majority of Americans, but there is still no evidence to back it up.

The important point here is that science is defined by a methodology which requires that testing and observation can be applied to the theories it investigates. Creationism incorporates supernatural claims. Supernatural claims are incapable of being tested or disproven by observation, THEREFORE, creationism isn't a scientific theory. Proponents can argue that it should be studied in school, and they might have a point- but NOT in a science class. If they wanted to teach a class on world religions and talk about it then- fine.

My point exactly.

Creationism is obviously mythology, just like all the other origin stories.
