Re: And Should it be Taught in Our Schools?
quote:

Evidence, what evidence??? Keep your eyes shut tight and you will never see. You are a very loyal member of the Darwin Party that much is clear and loyalty is a great trait but the truth of what the argument is all about has got to leak through at some stage.There's a paradigm shift going on -your philosophy is old and tired. Wake up to reality -lots of people are and the truth of what real science is,is infinitely satisfying.

Now you're the one who's following the party line with eyes tight shut - and promoting an old and tired philosophy agianst real science. The ID movement has been proclaiming a paradigm shift for years - and it looks less likely now than it did when the Wedge document was published. The Wedge program at least insisted that the science should be done first. However when that failed to happen the ID movement simply went on to the next stage - despite the warniongs in the Wedge document itself.

Instead of producing an exciting body of new research - which is what a new paradigm shift would require - the ID movement spends more time whining about (largely invented) persecution.

ID is a political and PR campaign to influence religion for religious reasons. That's really all there is to it.
