Maybe this guy needs to take an English class, literally. All you evo's need to do is let a fair and equal voice be heard. By not allowing it you are no better than a liberal rat.
Why not give fair and equal time in school to the folks that think the earth is balanced on the back of a big turtle?
The idea that "All ideas are equally valid" is actually typical of Leftists and political correctness.

You miss the point. Nobody likes their beliefs challenged, not even Evolutionists. Following suit (as most people do when their beliefs are challenged), it is usually the motives of those who challenge the beliefs that get attacked. In the case of evolutionists, they will be quick to actually TELL you what YOUR motives are (see many above posts). You're never going to get a tit-for-tat scientific showdown, so to speak, on the issue. You'll have an easier time challenging the theory of man causing global warming.
To an Evolutionist, typically, there is little to debate because they believe their theology is above reproach based on the idea that it is, of course, immune from the "fallacies" of religion and therefore the only true science. Whether or not that science is actually sound is not a debatable topic because it is "proven." "Proven" in this case simply means that it enjoys a certain percentage of agreement in an acceptable community (say, scientists, for example), while also enjoying the intellectual invulnerability that comes with being (supposedly) a-religious. Scientific challenges abound to said theory (Evolution); but as I said, it is not the merits of the argument that typically get debated, it is the motives of the opposition. Nobody of any faith likes to hear that the science "doesn't add up," if you would.
Most Evolutionists (though not all) you meet, however, hardly qualify as scientists. You will find few who have ever, for example, Carbon Dated a fossil. Yet they, like other believers, would die before they'd have other systems of beliefs held in equal standing.
They can deny it from here until Kingdom Come, but it is still a theory that cannot possibly be appropriately tested or proven/disproven to the extent that it would need to be to end the debate. The Flat Earth debate, for example, ends with the obvious physical proofs of the orbus Earth. No such proof is possible with Evolution or Creation.
We don't need to be fair. This is not about equal time. There are plenty of other crackpot ideas out there besides creationism and ID that are being ignored. If you don't like it, come up with your own theory and displace evolution. But you can't.
The unfairness is perceived only by those against evolution. That's why IDers need to get the government to impose itself on science. Fortunately, the inmates can't run the asylum and ID will inevitably lose.
The condescending liberals and evolutionists have infested academia and allow no criticism of their dogma. Christians have had to defend their views for 2000 years. Evolutionists have enjoyed a monopoly view in academia for quite a while now and are a bit spoiled. Evolutionists should be held to account to defend their dogma especially when they propose to ram it down our kids throats. Its also healthy for science in general.
