>>Big difference. The Evos use the government and the courts to enforce the religious dogma emanating from the Temple of Darwinistic Materialism on our public schools and government funded science institutions. Talk radio is governed by the free market. The libs seek to thwart the will of the market with respect to talk radio in the same way that the Evos thwart the free market of scientific ideas with respect to creation/intelligent design.<<
I think the fairness doctrine is a apt analogy - if we were talking about forcing philosophy classes to teach contrary to their normal curriculum or to force religion classes to give equal time to non-religion or forcing basketball teams to spend half their times saying “maybe basketball is wrong” then I would also feel it was similar to the fairness doctrine.
I don’t want to misquote you but I think you and I are in agreement that the constitution was never meant to limit voluntary public expression of religion. I think we would both support voluntary bible study anywhere, including public schools. What I don’t understand is the attempt to inject religion or ID or anything else not accepted by science into science curriculum.
I’d certainly support letting kids ask an question - I happily fielded questions about the flood, for example, but that’s different from adding it to the curriculum.
If that is your argument, then evolution needs to be exluded as well. Like creation and intelligent design, evolution is an historical inference about the unobservable, unrepeatable past. As such, evolution does not fall under the perview of operational science, and thus should be excluded. If you argue that it should be kept (and enforced), then competing historical inferences should also be given a fair hearing. That includes creation and intelligent design, not to mention panspermia and other competing evolutionary theories.
