They make it sound like you’d have competing classes for Christians and evolutionites across the hall from each other in schools but that isn’t realistic. To have a meaningful dialectic you’d need an apples/apples comparison that is, you’d need a religion which operated on an intellectual level similar to that of evolution to compare to evolution and there isn’t really any sort of a religion which operates on that sort of an intellectual level. Closest would be Rastafari but that’s almost an insult to the Rastas.

They also make it sound like scientology is a religion.

And do we really want the state teaching kids things from different religions? We're opening the door to a lot more than creation vs evolution when you starting mixing in a lot of religions and cults. They won't stop with biology.

Oh, that’s rich! It’s also difficult to discuss anything with “intellectual” evolutionists who are completely full of themselves and who’ve already decided that all people who have a belief in God and differ with evolutionists as to the where the scientific evidence leads are just morons who simply cannot function on the same “high” intellectual plain that they operate on.

God forbid that evolutionists be open to allowing research/discussion by professors on all sides of the issue to examine the physical evidence and allow it to lead us to wherever it leads and not just try to fit the evidence to evolutionary dogma or to the Biblical accounts of creation.

Of course I realize that I speak out of place and should not dare attempt to “dialectic” with you on the high intellectual plain you operate on.

You obviously have no clue what the word "dialectic" means but I'll give you a hint: It's not a variation of the word "dialog" as you are attempting to use it. Further, your laughable misuse of the word lets us know right off the bat of the intellectual pretension you bring to the argument. Second, religion and evolution are not inherently conflicting constructs as there are plenty deistic evolutionists so the whole dichotomy upon which you base your "intellectual level" argument is totally meaningless. Thanks for playing though.
