|The poll showed the overwhelming sentiment by people that the ID and IC etc. should be taught , that its good to have some debate and open controvesy, that kids and adults do have brains and can sort it out and that ther is merit in the ID and IC schema.|
I agree absolutely that ID and Creatioism should be taught, but in their proper place - Religous education classes. They do NOT belong in science classes because they are not scientific disciplines. They are as scientific as numerology, alchemy, astrology etc.
This has nothing to do with the Bible, or God, it is merely that science is science and they are not. And scientifically, there is no dispute about evolution, merely about its mechanism.
If I fly the coop some time
And take nothing but a grip
With the few good books that really count
It's a necessary trip
I'll be gone with the girl in the gold silk jacket
The girl with the pearl-driller's hands
