ABSTRACT
The article presents recommendations for classroom discussion on intelligent design and evolution. The author opines that discussion should not set intelligent design versus science, but should discuss the different metaphysical and philosophical claims to truth validity. In addition to absolute Truth claims, he proposes dialogue on smaller truth claims based on internally valid claims, externally valid claims, and claims based on traditional sources of validity such as scripture.
