Intelligent design does not derive its ideology using the scientific method, although it purports to. Intelligent Design is pseudo-science; it is religious dogma (creationism) in a lab coat.

Those desiring to teach the “weaknesses” of the theory of evolution are just trying to get their foot in the door so they can teach religious dogma. Intelligent design is very close to its cousin, creationism, so if you teach it, why not go all of the way and teach children about talking snakes and magic fruit that gives you the knowledge of good and evil when you eat it?

There are still lots of unknowns all branches of science, including evolution, and to say it has “no weaknesses” is flat wrong, unless he defines ‘weakness’ as a critical flaw.
