image for Intelligent Design demand science is taught in Religious Education
Students studying the Sikh religion now use test tubes

Science, the greatest construct ever created by man is to be taught in Religious Education classes across Texas.

"We got fed up trying to get religion taught in science classes," said ID proponent, Michael Beye. "So we tried a different tack."

Under the new legislation, there will be no more science taught in Texan schools. Instead, all science will be taught along side Judaism, Christianity and Hinduism.

"This is a major step forward," said Beye. "Finally, evolution is to be put on the same footing as other made up stuff, like Intelligent Design."

The ID Movement discovered that there was a greater latitude of opinion over what should be taught in Religious Education, and have successfully lobbied the Texas School Board to teach science alongside the various other creation myths.

"It's not ideal," said Beye. "We would have preferred if Religious Education only taught Creationism, I mean Intelligent Design. However, one step at a time."

The Discovery Institute, which created both creationism and Intelligent Design during one drunken meeting in February 1999, believes that by moving where the science curriculum is taught will help get their point across. However, it appears to be backfiring. Science has never been a compulsory module in American schools, where as Religious Education is mandatory.

"It all makes so much sense," said Christie Anne, a twelfth grader from Dallas. "I never would have taken science, being a devout Creationist. When the teacher explained the scientific method, I suddenly realised I'd been wasting my life following all that supernatural stuff. I'm jacking that in to become a theoretical physicist. It's much harder work than believing in mythical stuff that requires no thought at all, but I think it will be worth it."
