OK, so you have now dismissed Biology, Geology and Chemistry.

Is there any science you do accept?

Sort of confirms my point, eh? If fundamentalists ever take over significant control of this country, I believe many or most sciences will be trashed.

Remember, "Design theory promises to reverse the stifling dominance of the materialist worldview, and to replace it with a science consonant with Christian and theistic convictions."

“Design theory promises to reverse the stifling dominance of the materialist worldview, and to replace it with a science consonant with Christian and theistic convictions.”

Actually, if life is designed, then true science is by definition consonant with theistic convictions. Even Richard Dawkins is forced to admit that living things “overwhelmingly impress us with the appearance of design.” In short, ID merely seeks to apply science to the investigation of Dawkin’s very own admission.

Fundamentalists take many shapes. Orthodox Environmentalists already control Europe. Radical Darwinists still rule universities and many "respected" publications worldwide, too.

The poor scientist who dares publish DNA code skipping (the death of Evolutionary Theory) will be trashed, just as you predict above, by those entrenched fundamentalists.

But what if the "materialist world view" is false? And the "theistic world view" is true? Should we then stick to a false theory in order to prop up a false world view?
