The judge said the ID'ers have "bona fide and deeply held
beliefs which drive their scholarly endeavours", he did
not say ID is a bad idea...he just said he felt that the
school board was trying to inject religion, and had lied
about their intentions...
Doesn't the fact that people are in arms cuz their theory
is challenged tell you something?
What it tells me is that there are some deeply held beliefs
that are being challenged. Is it possible that you as a
teacher could talk about problems with evolutionary theory
without introducing any talk about (shudder!) the possibility
of a Creator(man or God, or alien)...
An interesting question....if mankind learns enough to be
able to "create" a life form, would it display any evidence
that it was created, or since "it" would have to run on
known physical laws, could someone who discovered the life
form, say in the unconnected future, proclaim it had evolved?
Another interesting question...could mankind evolve enough
such that life can be created by us? If so, does that prove
that life can be created, and doesn't HAVE to evolve by
Finally, could an alien entity, advanced in biological
technology have created life on this planet?
Then who created the alien entity? And why haven't we intercepted any of these aliens old T.V. reruns in the SETI project. In the end there is one ultimate Creator and nothing was created except by Him.
You said:Doesn't the fact that people are in arms cuz their theory is challenged tell you something?
Yes, it does. The folks who want only evolution taught have certainly been up in arms over the mention of aything else. So, it does indeed tell me something.
Thanks for your post.
