Quote# 32810

A large body of evidence for "intelligent design" exists. Even common sense suggests that natural and empirical laws are linked to an intelligent designer. Reasonable people can evaluate the concept and the evidence to back it up. But, the idea of intelligent design is so feared by scientists who cling with blind faith to the increasingly challenged theory of evolution that the mere mention of it in most public schools and universities is deeply ridiculed.

If the designer wishes to show himself, then we will believe in an intelligent designer. If by intelligent designer you mean the God of the Bible, then you are sadly mistaken, for that God does not fit the definition of "Intelligent."

The theory of evolution is only "increasingly challenged" in the minds of delusional fundtards that believe their own rhetoric.

And this evidence is?

If we ever needed definitive proof that 'Concerned Women (and some VERY onfused men) for America' are a bunch of idiots just pulling stuff out of their arses - this is it.

Your evidence for intelligent design, consists of claims that there are large amounts of evidence for intelligent design.

I'm sorry, but there is no evidence at all for an intelligent designer. The presumption is that there is an intelligent designer, and therefore all the things in this world that go right must be complex. We look at ourselves and feel wonder, therefore it must be too complex to happen by accident. This is largely because we're seeing it at its end rather than seeing it all through. But of course, you IDers don't believe in evo either, so... what do you do?

Ridiculed? I was taught that. Suggesting to any professor at my college that life was designed will probably be met with more ridicule than to say that it evolved.

Exceptfor the last 2, they seem to be female versions of those crazies that make it here everyday.

They keep talking and talking about all of this evidence. I guess they're just too shy to share it. But if Anna and Marian think this world and its inhabitants were intelligently designed, I must ask what their favorite parasite is.

"A large body of evidence...the evidence to back it up...".


like to see it plz.

Take a single card from a complete deck.

The chance of picking any one card is only 1/52.

So with a 100% certainty, something improbable will happen.

don't forget the spanking/beating of women and insistence on their subservients role!

Shouldn't Anna and Marian be at home preparing a nice meal, cleaning, and making themselves pretty so they can properly serve their husbands? Darned feminists - working outside the home!

No twit, the reason it's ridiculed in schools is because it's creationism by another name, and you aren't allowed to teach religion in public schools.

And without using your bible as excuse err source, prove creationism, please?

"A large body of evidence for "intelligent design" exists."

Do you understand English? in particular the meaning of the word "evidence" and the word "exists". Since you obviously don't, just shut the fuck up.

Is there anybody trying to force churches to also allow evolution being taught in church/Sunday School?

Why not?

Of course, they would have to allow someone other than a fundie in to teach it . . .

Holy crap, there is actually at least one woman at CWFA.

Color me shocked.

We keep hearing about this large body of evidence to prove intelligent design, and so far all we have is..more statements about this wonderful evidence! Enough mystery already, produce it! The only time any evidence has ever been produced in court for ID it proved so disastrous that a conservative daddy-Bush appointee judge ruled against it, so obviously that wasn't your A-class proof! Or maybe it was and you're just LYING?

If you're terrified of something, what are the odds you're going to mock it?

By that logic, you Fundie nuts would have to admit that you have nightmares about evolutionary scientists.

It's not fear, ladies...

It is three simple facts: 1. Real science does not allow for supernatural occurrences or entities; 2. Supernatural occurrences and entities are religious devices; 3. The government does not, and will not, support any religion.

'A large body of evidence for "intelligent design" exists'
Um, no, it doesn't. Wanting something to be so, because you're scared, doesn't make it so.

Intelligent Design is not feared. It merely cannot be proven using a scientific method.
Personally I believe in a creative energy responsible for jump starting creation. I choose to believe evolution was the means of creation. That way I can keep my belief in ID while still satisfying my scientific mind

12/25/2007 4:42:06 AM

John_in_Oz

Or the alternative theory that Fundies are so scared of that they won't even consider it, is that ID is ridiculed because it is ridiculous.
How does I.D. evplain all the stupid design choices in living creatures??

12/25/2007 7:16:32 AM



Sorry, people consult all sort of scientific journals, not your church's journals. After all, we all know that you're all science-illiterate.

If you have no evidence,
If you have no proof,
Just resort to 'common sense'
And claim what you say is 'truth'!
