IDers will go the way of the Flat Earth Society and Baseball Card Economists. They will remain a cult with devoted followers, but with little respect.
Ya mean sorta like the general public views evols?
I ain't got no dog in this hunt but it impresses me that evols are not only defensive about a position that they claim has no foundation and are often downright abusive about it. That ain't no way to win a battle considering that the majority of American's think evolution is full of holes.
Might I suggest that another approach is to calmly and without invective explain the position rather than use words like "cult", "ignorant", "bible thumpers", "knuckle draggers", "cousin marrying", et al. All of which I have seen used to describe those that question any aspect of the ToE.
Just a thought of course. If evols want to continue to insult those they wish to convince by all means, that is certainly the way to go.
But then that's the way the ACLU usually operates so I guess it's just business as usual.
"IDers will go the way of ... Baseball Card Economists."
Just so I can understand the analogy, exactly what is a "Baseball Card Economist"?
They will morph into something else. I'm anticipating "Designed Macroevolution".
LOL I would consider the evolutionists a cult: the Universities fire or don't hire well-qualified scientists if they get a hint you don't march to their drum. Editors who dare publish any research that is critical of evolutionary theory are fired!
Sorry, but evolutionary theory is going down with the dinosaurs. My daughter attends a well-respected private Academy and guess what? They teach ID and evolutionary cosmology. It does'nt hurt the student's ability to understand any of the hard sciences.
Evolution has nothing to do with understanding genetics, biochemistry or open-heart surgery.
It's only the cult of evolutions theorists and their cultish followers who claim the sky is falling! Please go back to the cave and live your glory days.
