Yes, teach intelligent design.

As the central tenets of creationism can neither be test nor refined it is not science.
Read Kitzmiller v Dover
To quote judge jones (a GWB appointee) in his decision:
"We find that ID fails on three different levels, any one of which is sufficient to preclude a determination that ID is science. They are: (1) ID violates the centuries-old ground rules of science by invoking and permitting supernatural causation; (2) the argument of irreducible complexity, central to ID, employs the same flawed and illogical contrived dualism that doomed creation science in the 1980's; and (3) ID's negative attacks on evolution have been refuted by the scientific community."
And evolution has no failures of its own? Ask the brilliant scientists how and more interestingly, why the eye developed. It will leave you in stitches. From a Time rag article the best explanation was a prehistoric animal sensed danger through a thin spot in its skin, so ever millions of years, (even though most times the creature was eaten of course) the most impossibly complex part of our body then evolved. What a *censored* joke! Another good one I heard was why are the flowers colorful? From a scientist now, "They are colorful because they sensed that the hummingbirds are attracted to the more colorful ones to over millions of years they all became colorful"!!! Oh the handstands these "brilliant" minds will go through to try to prove there is no one out there in all the realms of space that might be smarter than them. Yup that the BS science I want my kid learning in school. I think not.
