ID should not be taught as Science. However, there should be an area of scientific research dedicated to it in trying to figure out if the spirit exists.

Since such a large percentage of people believe in a spirit and even a great spirit (god), ongoing and serious research into this field is more than justified.

A foundation of serious scientific study into this area SHOULD BE TAUGHT in school to give future researches a base.

Contrary to popular belief (because it's taboo in science) there are many scientific (used in the strict sense of the word) studies that show there is something metaphysical in the human mind occurs and can affect the world around.

Further, there are many accounts of "normal" people reporting extraordinary spiritual experiences. Is it safe to dismiss all of them as delusional?

Research needs to be conducted and the results must not be silenced by other scientists who can't fit the findings into their current understanding.

Re: ID
"There is, its called theology."

I am not talking about theology. I am talking about metaphysics.

"And there are equally as many studies that show the opposite, that what is happening in the human mind is just a neurological process...nothing meta about it."

There are studies that show taking milk is bad for you too. What's your point?

Something tells me you're not exactly an expert in spirituality.

"Ok we'll wait to see your results then..."

I'm not trying to prove or disprove anything. Good luck on your results though.

Above link broken into 3 lines since it's too long for this forum. Link fixed. --Admin

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metaphysics

P.S. I usually don't just post links but since the above are being rather rude it's justified as I don't like conversing with rude people.

Edited by Marcosll, : Link problems
