The Science of Creationism?

Kevin Drum and Atrios do a great job of expressing the wry amusement I feel over Bush's willingness to see intelligent design taught alongside evolution in public school science classes. I won't try to top their research and commentary - check it out.

The amusement in my case, though, conceals a cold clutching fear in the pit of my stomach.

Emotion aside, what are the scientific aspects of creationism that would be taught? Would there be any pretense of applying actual science scholarship to its presentation?

More likely it just opens the barn door for abuse by faith driven proseletizers.

There is no science behind it, none. Fristians have a way of creating something out of nothing so don't be surprised if all the science they use to prove creationism is just a bunch of weak logic poking holes in evolution.
