Schools in the UK that teach `intelligent design` as science will no longer have govt funding. Opinions, I-A-B?

Just to note, I agree with everything Mr_Pedo_Bear said. I just wanted to explain how it's not like intelligent design whereas Mr_Pedo_Bear explained how it is like evolution. ^^

@CrakrJak - The process of Windows OS changing to its current state is much more like evolution than like intelligent design, even though it was clearly developed by humans. If it was more like intelligent design/creationism then the very first Windows OS would be exactly the same as Windows 7. Also, Windows would not change past being Windows 7. Therefore, it would have been very impressive for Windows 7 to have been the original, but as technology progresses, Windows wouldn't progress, it`d remain unchanging, and we`d be stuck with old technology.

Evolution is where organisms with more positive traits are more likely to survive and procreate meaning more members of the species gain those traits over time evolving. If something fit's it doesn`t evolve quickly.

Look at sharks http://www.elasmo-research.org/education/evolution/evol_s_predator.htmBecause the rate of evolutionary change in sharks is very slow and gradual, it can be frustratingly difficult to determine where one species stops and another begins. There is no evidence of punctuated equilibrium (sudden `jumps` in form) in the shark fossil record. Without sharp discontinuities, boundaries between named species are often made rather arbitrarily along a continuum of variation.

@Crackrjak you ignore Reboot's reply and focus on distorting what I said. I was giving an example of a chain where you`d be able to tell the entire chain even if you removed a link and some of the evidence of transformation using an example of something very simple you would be able to understand.
I will also disagree at what you claim that it would be intelligent design. There is a force driving the evolution of windows os. Customer feedback. Features which work better, get praise and carried onto the next system. Features which don`t die out are removed. very very crude very very basic but I was trying for a very very simplistic thing for you to understand.
