At most colleges and universities, perhaps including the one you yourself attend, research and teaching about intelligent design is forbidden science.
Darwin himself realized that any kind of significant saltational change would imply a miracle-like intelligent intervention.
This is how we train the next generation of scientists and scholars in the leadership of the ID movement.
One of the consequences of academia’s embargo against ID is that students on their own university campuses can’t learn about evidence for design in nature.
Design advocates have the advantage of looking at both sides of the origins debate.
