So there!!!

Well, a conservative federal judge has spoken clearly and loudly: intelligent design is religious in scope and goals and is not relevant to science. I can't understand why people who are dependent upon science for their daily bread as well as their computer games, tv babysitters, automobiles that take them to the Wall-Mart that sells products made of plastic (an unnatural product), and provides them with cold medicines, antibiotics, etc., that make their visits to the doctor more productive than the old days when doctors just comforted the dying, have such a hatred of science. Do they want to go back to the days of undulant fever from milk, thatched roofs where spiders and rats lived, and sewage running in the streets?

They call it intelligent design, yet my wisdom teeth, my former tonsils, my brother's former appendix, my allergies, tuberculosis, babies so big they have to wait until they're outside the womb to fully develop would seem to indicate that either the designer wasn't intelligent or wasn't giving much thought to his design.

And I like the judge's point about activism: "...this case came to us as the result
of the activism of an ill-informed faction on a school board, aided by a national public interest law firm eager to find a constitutional test case on intelligent design, who in combination drove the board to adopt an imprudent and ultimately unconstitutional policy."

It ain't activism when it serves to uphold the status quo rather than advance unsubstantiated claims.

I don't think that people hate science. Science is a wonderful thing and people realize that. People also realize that science has its limitations just like everything else and can't explain everything in the universe. Have you ever looked at how amazing the universe is? Have you ever thought about how complex everything in the universe is? Just thinking about all the processes that happen in the human body daily without us even being aware of them is amazing. I am personally amazed by the fact that, while nothing is perfect, the world and everything on it is just awesome. The smell of a rose, the colors of a sunset, the blue sky etc. I highly recommend going to this site: hubblesite.org. They have beautiful pictures from the Hubble Telescope. Intelligent design doesn't have to be religious. It is just acknowledging that everything, as complex as it is, could not have come about by chance or a "big bang", but rather by an intelligent maker. To say that because you or anyone else gets sick that the designer isn't intelligent is not a good assumption. Would you say that the person who made your computer isn't intelligent because it may happen to break or get a virus and crash? I have tremendous respect for the person who made the laptop I am currently typing on and am sure they are intelligent. In the same way, I have respect and admiration for the intelligent creator of the universe and life on earth.
