evolution debate

Postby mothermary » Wed Apr 21, 2010 9:39 pm

I think that the teaching of intelligent design is addition to evolution is wrong. Evolution has stood the test of time. Intelligent design is just a huge cover for creationism. Has anyone ever read pandas and people?

You seem to be contradicting yourself.

Which I guess is standard for starting this type of discussion.

I think the way you worded the first sentence of the O.P. can be misleading. I think you meant that teaching Intelligent Design in addition to evolution is wrong.... correct?

intelligent design as i see it... scientifically says that GOD exists.... i dont think it should be encouraged... i feel that we are trying to cover up our inability to answer everything......

Though i don't say that the whole "UNIVERSE" is created by SOME intelligent design... i do say that there is possibility that life on earth MAY be the result of some intelligent design.... All we can do is to guess.... FACT is that we can never find out how we came into existence... But everything does not have a possible explanation... Our obsession for answers to everything can be understood by the attempt kierkegaard logical explanation of GOD...

My point is... that intelligent design cannot be accepted or rejected.... it's not a scientific theory.... a scientific theory CAN be tested for proof... intelligent design... cannot be tested.. and thus can never be proved... it's just a philosophy ... which you are at liberty to believe or not.....

Of course, if virtually identical life forms to Earth's were found on other planets, that MIGHT support ID...who knew that Star Trek was religious ideology?

Well I do agree that ID could be a possibility. My point is that because its not a scientific theory, it has no place in the education system. These thoughts of intelligent design are meant for places of faith or in your own home. Scientific explanations are the only thing that should be taught in class.
