'Intelligent design' not science says Vatican

Amazing! For once I can agree unequivocally with something which the Catholic Church believes. The Vatican, according to this Reuters report of an article appearing in Vatican newspaper L'Osservatore Romano, states that:

"Intelligent design does not belong to science and there is no justification for the demand it be taught as a scientific theory alongside the Darwinian explanation."

So much for the attempt by some Christian conservatives in the US to claim that its belief in 'Intelligent design' is shared by the Catholic church.
