Intelligent Design

To teach it, or not to teach it, that is the question. Here is what I think.

I think that kids should be taught both Darwins theory as well as the Intelligent Design theory.

Some will say that religious things shouldn't be taught in school. I think a theory is a theory. A theory is a way of describing a fact. We know we are here, but we need to prove how we got here, so what's wrong with going over ALL of the ways people think we're here. These are both theories describing the birth of the modern human; therefore, they should both be told and let the kids decide on what they want to believe.

But people will still say that it provokes religion. No. We are telling you how some people think we are here, we are not ordering you to get on your knees and pray to god. That would be provoking religion.

Now I myself don't believe in intelligent design, but that is a really stupid reason for it not to be taught in school, because I also believe that math isn't important, we'd all be idiots if that was controversial.

Then some will still believe it's provoking religion and go as far as saying it's unconstitutional. Again it's a theory not an order. And the whole unconstitutional thing is crap, just like how they use that to edit the pledge. They think "under god" is somehow making people Christians. It's symbolism of how America isn't higher than everything, it says God is higher, but not in a religious way. It's symbolic. They change things to make it look unconstitutional and some idiots actually believe them. This is what they are also doing with ID (short for Intelligent Design).

So that's what I think, teach both theories together, let the kids believe what they want, simple as that. Nobody gets offended, only the extremly left Liberals think someone will, and nobody does.

    You make an excellent point here. And you show wisdom in the fact that you personally don't believe in intelligent design but see no reason why that "theory" shouldn't be taught. Good for you. As I've said before, you are wise beyond your years.

    I do believe in Intelligent Design, but am not going to argue that point with you. Just explain to you that I cannot look at so much as a flower without seeing intelligent design in it. But I am me and you are you, and that is what makes the world interesting. If we were all alike, how boring would that be?

    Keep blogging and don't give up on it. Many conservative bloggers would like to post comments here. Evidently, most of them don't know you are here yet.

    And keep writing. Try to keep words like "idiots" out of your posts. Sometimes it's okay in your comments, because of what they may be calling you; but it should be avoided in your main posts. Just focus on facts and what you believe without making judgements. It will improve your writing skills. Please forgive me if I am sounding critical. I'm only trying to help you with some sound advice.

    She's right. I mean, Gayle's right. We are way more hostile than Gayle, but don't use pejoratives in a main post either.

    This is a good post.

    Intelligent Design is not a scientific theory, dude. It's metaphysics. Teach it for what it is, a religious belief, if you must but leave it out of the science classroom. ID has no place there.

    But it's still a theory, and for all we know it could very well be right. So why not teach it? what bad could really come from it? I also don't get how this is controversial, but teaching the Muslum religion and pretending to be Muslum for a week gets absolutly NO attention.
