Intelligent Design

Postby CardZeus » Wed, 21 Dec 2005 9:39 am

A US court has ruled it is unconstitutional to use public funds to teach that life was created by a higher power. At least in a science class. What are peoples thoughts on this and I would be particularly interested to hear any arguments from anyone in favour of this...
The most incomprehensible thing about the world is that it is at all comprehensible.

It's not science, therefore doesn't belong in science teachings.

We a bit of a debate about this a while ago. I would just like to say, well done Mr. Judge. It reinforces my view that at least most of the US are not religious fanatics.

I would say though that this is just a battle in what is going to be a war fought in many states.

I find this whole "intelligent design" thing embarrassing. Thank God the judge stuck it down.

Is Intelligent Design the same as the Christian idea of Adam and Eve? Didn't they have a name for that already?
