In letters referencing evolution and intelligent design, each author provides bits of information supporting their pre-concluded opinion.
Science in its best form is the search for truth. I see two possibilities. Either the universe and all life are the result of purely undirected, natural processes, which is the underlying assumption of evolutionary biology, or the universe and all life are the result of directed intelligent design (no characterization of the designer assumed). I would like the children in science class to examine the evidence and decide for themselves which theory is supported by the evidence.
