Intelligent Design not True?

Doublethink means the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one’s mind simultaneously, and
accepting both of them.
George Orwell

Interesting response to last nights post

He wrote: Splitting hairs by trying to categorize some science as religious and some as fact to support evolution is shameful.

I think the splitting of the hair was called for. I think that ‘Religious Science’ is an oxymoron, kinda like ‘military intelligence’. Evangelical Christians controls the ‘science’ emanating from the Discovery Institute. What they espouse is purely ‘magic’.

They pretend that they want equal time for their ‘scientific’ views, when in fact they are pushing the supernatural….this is disingenuous at the least; at most, it is a studied, willful deceit upon trusting people.

He said: Students should be taught science in the science classroom not predetermined, censored, pre-filtered information to proselytize one view over another. Teach science and let the weight of the evidence be the determinant as to the outcome.

That would be unfair to you, don’t you think? After all, the science comes from hundreds of thousands of real scientists, from all over the world. The ‘Religious Science’ is filtered through, at most, a few thousand leaders in the US evangelical world. I might add that most of the flack comes almost exclusively from the US

He said: Evolutionists are so concerned that their mythical hypothesis will come unraveled, that censorship seems the best way to combat exposure to the truth. Teach both and see which one can stand the test of scrutiny!!

You see, one point creationists and ID proponents refuse to accept is that teaching science is not censorship of truth. It…IS…the truth.

I think the evangelical believers are now at the point where the Catholic Church was in the Dark Ages. Back then they could not accept the fact that the earth revolved around the Sun, and they basically killed anyone that disagreed. Religion tends to be this way. You better believe or you’re toast friend.

You know, that ‘mythical hypothesis’ has already, with few changes , survived 150+ years of hard scrutiny by some hardcore evangelical evangelizers. Sorry, I couldn’t resist that 🙂

Another thing the religious right tends to do is repeat the same questions over and over again. They get answered, and a few months later someone else is asking the same thing. All the questions have been answered by those much smarter than I.

Peace to all.
