Stopping Democrat Corruption by exposing leftist lies.
So does intelligent design use natural selection or not?
What a load of horse manure
And to think we make fun of DU.
Also no mention of origin of life. Oh, well. Facts may not be relevant in this attack on science.
Why can't people just agree to disagree? Why do we seek to find witches and demons in those who hold views contrary to our own? Are people THAT intellectually challenged?
ID cannot answer the questions it asks of science. Evolution is theory built upon evidence. ID is religious speculation that denies what we know about the world via science. It doesn't even answer what the evidence is of a designer, nor the origins of that designer, not how this designer can physically manipulate the world around us without leaving a footpring behind. Evolution does have some intersting and importnat quersitons about specific things, but that is healthy scientific debate, not a retreat from where clear evidence leads. The author of the article needs to stop trying to change the meaning of science to hit his own agenda.
Wrong from the very first sentence. How typical.
Yet assume that it did. Now this is the million $$ question, are there millions of these evolutionary possibilities all over the universe or are we the only sentient beings in the entire universe? Keep in mind the mathematical probabilities of evolution occurring here on earth. That there is life in the universe is not the issue. That there is sentient life is a whole different question. Science cannot answer the question nor offer a theoretical alternative.
Putting words in quotes doesn't disprove things.
The problem is that science, not just evolution, is undermined by this type of nonsense. All of science must be gutted in order to fit what some people 'believe.' For those of us that believe the strength of the U.S. resides in the technological prowess of our citizens, our own future is being short changed by the anti-science crowd found in the ID basket.
Who made the deck of cards?
With plenty of funding from the looney Moonies, if indeed they are looney and not malignant.
Plus support accepted from the anti-evolution Islamists.
Evolution is the only "scientific" theory that needs legal protection. How pathetic.
Religion's basic premise is that all "life" on the planet miraculously "emerged" through a few waves of a magic wand.
Sounds about equally stupid, I think.
"Then, to believe evolutionary "theory," you have to accept on blind faith that this same miracle of perfect order from total chaos has repeated itself millions of times to account for each of the plants, animals, and life on earth."
Right, let's stop this article right there. Whoever wrote it needs to go back to school. Or maybe he hasn't got there yet.
Creationists please, show just a bit of intelligence with your arguments and I'll promise to stop laughing at you.
