I teach Intelligent  Design to my students . They are aware of the theory of evolution as well.   One of mine is a biology major in college now and has done well for herself.

If by "students" you mean your children, fine.  If by students you mean kids in public school, then you are bringing religion into a science class, and I would have a problem with that.  As might other parents in your district.

Good for you! There are more than 1 set of ideas about the origins of life and the students should be taught that. If you are just teaching it as 1 of the "theories" and not as fact then I do not see why people should get upset.

Anywhere but a public school and I agree with you.

In a public school?

Absolutely not.

I agree with this. If you are doing this in a public school you have crossed a line, and as a parent I have issues with this. It is not your job to introduce this theory.

Aren't your students your own children, since you homeschool? If that's the case, that's your right.

How so?  The theory of ID held by many has nothing to do with religion.

 Additionally, I think that by not teaching this we are short changing out kids. Teaching that it is a theory in no way tells them it is fact. Much like Darwin's THEORY of evolution, although I believe in intelligent design as well as evolution, teaching these ideas as theory can only open a students eyes to the fact that there are different beliefs out there. It doesn't try to change them, only educate them.
