Frist supports IDC, what about phrenology?

Frist voices support for ‘intelligent design’ - Politics -
Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist said "intelligent design" should be taught in public schools alongside evolution.

Frist, a Republican from Tennessee, spoke to a Rotary Club meeting Friday and told reporters afterward that students need to be exposed to different ideas, including intelligent design.
Students do need to be exposed to different ideas. No doubt. The question is how you decide which ideas. There have to be criteria, or you start teaching Intelligent Falling, Holocaust denial, and phrenology.

IDC is no more scientific than those ideas, and students deserve better.
