Thanks, Jim. Intelligent Design was the middle ground one I was thinking of, but couldn't quite remember the name. And everyone, thanks for the responses so far as they echo sentiment over much of the US. There are, however, many states mulling over alternatives to Darwin's Theory to be taught in science classes.
Ask an atheist how life came to be, and odds are Darwin's Theory will be mentioned. Take into account that atheism is an acknowledged religion and is protected by the Constitution, and Darwinism becomes a facet of that religion. Conversely, ask a Jew, Christian, Muslim, Hindi, or any other religion with a defined 'God', and odds are some aspect of Creationism will be given.
Personally, I wouldn't mind Intelligent Design being discussed in some science classes as a theory in addition to Darwin's Theory. Not as a 'religious perspective', but as a scientific theory. I'm not anti-Darwin, but there's a reason why his Theory is just a theory.
