Re: Rebuttal article encouraged

Posted By: Jack McDonald on April 10, 2007
Here's a brain wave for you: The anti-evolutionists have had more than ample opportunity to provide solid evidence for the their position and have failed. They have actually had hundreds of years longer to work on their "theory" than the evolutionists, who began only in 1859. The body of "evidence" they have accumulated is next to nothing. Instead of presenting their own experiments or reporting the results of their work in reputable peer-reviewed journals, their main argument for ID is to present why evolution is impossible and to resort sometimes to underhanded and dishonest tactics to do it. If you want to have this book in school, teach it in a religion course where it belongs. As far as empirical science, it lacks any evidentiary credibility. Their movement is a prime example of evolution at work: "Intelligent design" is simply another step in the "evolution" of the name of a faith-based idea. The name of the movement changes, as do some of its text books, whenever political or legal roadblocks become insurmountable. I'm wondering what the next name will be in this evolution as soon as everyone realizes how bogus this one is. At the risk of going to Hell for saying it I will tell you to leave religion, yours and mine, for church and Sunday School.
