Re: And Should it be Taught in Our Schools?

Intelligent Design is not religion in the guise of science. The term is self-explanatory and does not imply God or religion.

What f'ing bullshit. All the term Intelligent Design does is hand wave away the problem of explanation for the universe. If the universe is intelligently designed we are then left with the question of where that intelligence arose from and now the answer is left wanting once again.

Intelligent Design is a non answer for people whose credulity allows for no questioning.

Re: Teleological arguments

The infinite regression issue is not specific to intelligent design. The laws of nature have the same problem.

Bold statement sine.Care to show the steps that determine in what way the laws of nature are infinitely regressive?

How about non-Christians David Berlinski and Michael Denton?

David Berlinski eh? I have to ask you . Would you let your accountant prescribe medication to you or would you prefer a doctor?
Why then is a mathematician holding court on the validity of a matter in biology?
Should a microbiologist tell Berlinski that his thoughts on Ramuanujan's Sum Identity are ludicrous and without warrant?
Did Einstein listen to his tailor when formulating general relativity theory?
David Berlinski ,you might also note, does not attack Darwin alone but also Intelligent Design so perhaps this is not a can of worms you wish to open.

Atheists do not have faith that there is no god. Atheists simply have no belief in a god.

Saying that atheism is a belief system is like saying that bald is a hair color.
