Question of the Day — 12/20/05

Issue: Judge rules against 'intelligent design': Pennsylvania case among biggest since 1925 Scopes trial/Associated Press; And: Text of Intelligent Design statement.

DFO: I view the notion that we descended from apes to be just as absurd as the evolutionists view my opinion that God spoke the universe into existence (Genesis) and fashioned each one of us in our mothers' wombs (Psalms 139: 13-15). I don't think religion should be taught along with science in public classrooms. But there should be a disclaimer in science books re: "Intelligent Design" for the 45% who believe God did it all and the 45% who believe that it was a God/evolution thing. As it is, this ruling honors the 10% who believe it was all evolution. Again, we default to the minority religion of unbelief.

Question: What do you think of this ruling? (BTW, I'm posting this with renewed confidence that we can have a civil discussion on this divisive issue.)
