Intelligent design holds that nature is so complex it must have been the work of an God-like creator rather than the result of natural selection, as argued by Charles Darwin in his 1859 Theory of Evolution.



There's nothing intelligent about that. This would of been alright to teach if we were in the year 1600.


If they're teaching this in Science then teach Scientology in Religious Class

The theory of evolution has many holes in it, so if intelligent design shouldn't be taught, neither should evolution. I personaly think that evolution is as retarded as a Fat man tryin to lose weight by eating a 14 foot sandwich and 3 buckets of bacon while standing on his head scratching his ass.


You can't see God.
You can't hear God.

How does that prove that something cannot exist unless you can see it and/or hear it? It doesn't. You cannot prove that something does not exist without being able to be felt, seen or heard, and neither can you prove that it does.

Well, there is no way that a person that actually looked into the theory any deeper than a glance would say the statement I just read above.

The "many holes" of evolution does not equate anywhere near "Intelligent Design" when it comes to hard supportive facts, evidence, and data to back it up. I.D. is fiction, with nothing but conjecture to back it up. Evolution has a hundred years of science to support it.

The fact that you think we evolved from monkeys just kind of shows that you are not familiar with the concept and are regurgitating what you have been told(incorrectly btw).

Unlike religion, science never claimed to have every answer, and yes there can be changes when science finds something new. If a new fossil is found that changes what we understand the history to be, beit the timeline or the relationship to another species, science is flexible enough to fit that new evidence into is theory.

I took the time to read the bible and understand creationism, at least take the time to look into evolution long enough to know what you are shooting down.

Too many people on both sides of the spectrum have fallen into this mentality that a full one half of the country are the enemy for having different beliefs...in a country based on freedom of expression. It is this infighting that allows the focus to be taken away from "we the people" being able to watch, and have control over government corruption and ineptitude that is running rampant in our leadership.

People should be working towards fixing problems, not creating them.

As you can see, all of you hear are pretty boring. I make a joke saying we came from Monkey's, because everyone knows that's what alot of people think when you first hear "evolution", and they take you word for word, and take everything seriously. Why can't anyone understand jokes around here? Anyways, I don't beleive in religion, I beleive one should follow the bible and only the bible, not some priest or other "father" or whatever you want to call'em.

Faith is stronger than knowing.

But yeah, if they want to teach evolution, sure let them, it'll just add to the number of people who disagree with the theory.

If you were aiming for a joke, you missed by a long shot...a very long shot, but nice recovery...

I disagree, and that is why I believe in what science produces.

OKay like what holes? can you even give one example?
how about this for ID they can't even test it... that's a pretty major scientific hole....
and just because they got some math guy screwing numbers to try and prove it doesn't make it real either....
again i have to say this... evolution is just as proven as gravity if you people don't know this or don't believe this then the religious community has done you a major wrong dealing with education, it's tie to get out a real biology book, or if you're feeling frisky take a look at darwin's own book he does quite a good job at proving his theory him self....

it seems to me that the idea of a personal God is an anthropological concept which I cannot take seriously. I also cannot imagine some will or goal outside the human sphere.... Science has been charged with undermining morality, but the charge is unjust. A man's ethical behavior should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties and needs; no religious basis is necessary.

I don't think any of these "The Vague Society of Nebulous Meanies are going to take over the world and light up a planet" theories worry too much about practical considerations like that. It's all about rousing ill-informed, paranoiac fear, not making sense.

Talon, I must say that you are already my hero. You are smart and make perfect sense. Its things like this that make me ashamed to be an American. -_-; I don't think creation should EVER be teached in schools, anymore than Adam & Eve etc...its bullsh*t.
