My final Highschool project, Intelligent Design

Ok, I am pretty sure I haven’t posted anything up here in an extremely long time, but now I hope to change that, and hopefully I will begin to contribute on a more frequent basis.

Now, with that out of the way, i think I’m going to start blogging about my topic for my senior project. As some of you may know in some states you must complete a graduation project to receive your diploma from high school. For once I think I’m going to go all out on this one. My topic is going to be “Intelligent Design.” This is something that i have always wondered about, as some people do. So to inform myself on the topic, as well as others, I am now going to write a 5 page research paper on the topic, as well as create a video or power point.

The problem though is this, my project must be approved by several people at my school. I have made it over the first hurdle of getting it passed by my advisor, but now there is a much larger hurdle to over come, which is getting it passed the person in charge of the senior projects. This is where it becomes fun.

Today i took the typed proposal into her office and asked her if it would be ok to do. After reading it she asked me what my "goals" were for this project, which were clearly stated in the paper itself. Politely i told her exactly what it stated in the paper, which was quite simply, after doing extensive research and reading, to attempt getting the theory of intelligent design taught, or at least given a fair chance in the science classes in my school.

After telling her this she then looked at me with a blank stare, almost like she could not believe what she had just heard. She then, quite flatly, stated that she would have to talk to the principal, if not someone even higher up than him to get the ok.

Now i sit in limbo, Do i get to do the project that i want, or will i be forced into doing something, for lack of a better word, stupid, for my senior project.

As of now i have this strange sinking feeling that it will not be approved. But being the kind of person i am, i will not get discouraged. For once its one game that i plan on winning, that i am going to stand up to the establishment to fight for what i believe.

Now however im going to have to ask for something, If this dose fail, i need some sort of contingency if this dose fall through. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated and i wish to thank any one who comes up with anything in advanced.
