obviously you didnt read much of your own clip there Einstein.
Whether or not the universe was intelligently designed has nothing to do with science. Science deals with the what, not the who.
Intelligent design is simply an attempt to prop up anachronistic religions that have not evolved with science.
The amount of horseshit posted here by the proponents of right-wing religious propaganda is nothing but a tissue of shameless lies--and Leady leads the pack in that effort.
Intelligent design is not science..
Quote:Intelligent design is not science..
That's easy (and quite common) to say, but I've seen some persuasive arguments made (by the famous, life-long atheist philosopher of science, Thomas Nagel, for instance) to the contrary.
The political urge to defend science education against the threats of religious orthodoxy, understandable though it is, has resulted in a counterorthodoxy, supported by bad arguments, and a tendency to overstate the legitimate scientific claims of evolutionary theory.
Skeptics about the theory are seen as so dangerous, and so disreputably motivated, that they must be denied any shred of legitimate interest. Most importantly, the campaign of the scientific establishment to rule out intelligent design as beyond discussion because it is not science results in the avoidance of significant questions about the relation between evolutionary theory and religious belief, questions that must be faced in order to understand the theory and evaluate the scientific evidence for it
Judge Jones is careful to say, “We express no opinion on the ultimate
veracity of ID as a supernatural explanation.”18 This is not the position of
most evolutionary scientists, however. They believe that there are no
supernatural explanations, and that trying to show that they are incompatible
with the evidence is a waste of time If someone had the slightest idea of how to even test or evidence the above, then perhaps there could be some value to these 19 pages no?
That could just as easily been written for "The Onion." If someone had the slightest idea of how to even test or evidence the above, then perhaps there could be some value to these 19 pages no?
