Evolution and Creationism/ Intelligent Design Controversy links

There is increasing pressure to remove evolution from public science classrooms or introduce intelligent design as an alternative scientific theory for the development of life on our planet. Proponents of intelligent design claim that there are fundamental problems with the theory of evolution and that there is a scientific controversy over the validity of evolution; views that are not supported by scientific organizations. The following websites offer explanations concerning what science is, the validity of evolution, teaching resources, and statements in support of evolution from some of the leading natural science organizations in the United States. Many of the sites have useful information for addressing questions and misconceptions raised by parents, students, or the general public.
