I hate to break the news to you, but evolution has been sustained as a scientific theory for 146 years. That's longer than most current scientific theories of physics and chemistry have been sustained.

Intelligent design has been sustained as a scientific theory for a grand total of zero years. To be clear, that's zero followed by an infinite number of zeros.

You're arguing the wrong point. The real issue -- the one that will have consequence -- is what it looks like to the rest of the world, including the scientific and business communities, if a state adopts ID.

There is no proof whatsoever that man evolved from a single celled organism. There are plenty of fairy tales, but when push comes to shove, it's nothing more than a pipe dream.

Those who have swallowed that pipe dream hook line and sinker are experiencing nothing more than a faith based experience.

Even definitive proof of how the one celled organism originated is up for grabs.

Yes, the fossil record is replete with evidence of evolving species.

And more than 146 years ago, many thought the world was flat.

News evidence debunks evolution, and more and more scientists are becoming skeptical of evolution.

" evolution has been sustained as a scientific theory for 146 years. That's longer than most current scientific theories of physics and chemistry have been sustained."

And there you have hit the nail on the head. Physics and chemistry are real science, where evidence is weighed and when a theory is found to be unsupportable it falls, whereas with evolution, when evidence is found that refutes it, the evidence is rejected, and worship continues at the shrine of evolution.

Thank you for pointing out that stark difference.
