Darwin's Theory of evolution does not explain or account for how life came to be on this planet, it only postulates what happened after it came to be.
Intelligent Design is merely one possible explanation for how life came to be.
Evolution does happen, yes. But not to the degree or on the scale that some claim. It has not been proven, for example, that all life on this planet evolved from primordial goo, or even that humans evolved from other primates. Those assumptions are made on faith, just like the assumption that a Higher Being put this all together.
That said, you're missing the point. You need not fear that Ron Paul will use the state to impose his belief system on you. But maybe that's not the issue with you. Perhaps you want the state to impose a belief system on everyone, just not Ron Paul's?
