Creationism

Discussion of everything related to the Theory of Evolution.

Michael Behe is one of the witnesses for the defense in the Dover, PA evolution trial.
If the Reuters story is right, "A lawyer for the parents produced an article by Behe saying the theory of intelligent design would be undermined without the existence of God. Earlier in the day Behe denied intelligent design was equivalent to creationism."
Behe is being dishonest in his representation of intelligent design.

It is impossible to prove or disprove the presence of an imperceptible being. I think you are being dishonest in your challenge of science to disprove God. Would you convert to the Iroquoi religion if we found fossils of Sky People?

I just wanted to reply to this because I thought it was neat how my Principles of Bio teacher brought this up, first this we studied was 'what is science,' you know?
She said that everything science must be observable, testable, and measurable. And that just because you can't measure something doesn't mean it isn't real, it just isn't science! and that it can be explained another way (philosophically). She didn't say anything about intelligent design. I think that is a good thing to teach students, not about creationism but that Evolution is a theory and these are some things that are weak about it. If someone in the class were to bring up God I think you could explain that you can believe in intelligent design but it can't be tested, measured, or observed.
