I could care less. Either way we are here. There are many more topics and issues that should be occupying our time. The government would be better off dealing with all the people still homeless from Katrina and bringing our service men and women safely home from Iraq.Originally posted by jimmo:
What are your views on Inteligent design versus evolution? Should government get involved?

How so? This is the first I have heard of such a thing. By what and how is it proven wrong? And I am a faithful recipient of the "Acts and Facts" from the Institute for Creation Research (they call themselves "Creation Evangelists). And they have demonstrated no such thing, and the case in Pennsylvania failed to do so in the eyes of the law as well as in the eyes of the scientific community last week. Science is open ended and does not make claims of certainty. Scientific theories historically can be superceded by theories with greater explanatory ability and greater corroboration with known facts. So-called intelligent design does not even come up to the standard of Scientific Hypothesis let alone theory. Why pick the worst and most fallacie-ridden proposal as the creationists desire to do?Originally posted by Marty:

Now Abraham, surely we've agreed on someting in the past. It's not like agreeing with me is the worst thing that could happen to youOriginally posted by Abraham:
First, what makes me dizzy here is that I agree with Nell. This is something to celebrate this Winter Solstice Season.
Marty, when I was in school a bzillion years ago, before Abraham was born (our Abraham, not the O.T. one) we were taught that evolution was a theory. We were also taught that some people believed literally in the Bible and that the world and everything in it was created by God. No one forced us to listen to either theory, after all we were in school to learn. Being that it was before Ms O'Hare kicked religion out of the public schools our teachers were allowed no one got upset over both possibilities being explained. Even then it didn't matter to me because we were here and that's all that mattered, there were far more important issues to be concerned about.Originally posted by Marty:
But, after all the years of even us, as children, being forced to listen to the scientific concept of what creation is in our schools, and now having most of the theory of evolution proven wrong,
Interesting Abraham. My kids went to Catholic grade schools and 2 went to Catholic high schools. They were all taught both evolution and creation. I went to a Catholic college and evolution was taught there too. Most Catholics I know believe in evolution or at least think it's more plausible than the account in the O.T.Originally posted by Abraham:
I went to a catholic grade school so I was "taught" creation only. See how well that worked.
