    Bush backs intelligent design

    Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 1:43 pm

    The I.D. vs. evolution debate has been heating up for several years now, I believe, because of the many scientific problems with evolution that can no longer be covered up. There are increasing numbers of intelligent design supporters among science professionals and scholars, and it’s easy to find scientific journals and books exposing these problems. It can only help that we now have a President who supports teaching I.D. alongside evolution in schools.

    As you would expect, evolutionists have shifted their criticism of I.D. into overdrive. They’re also working harder than ever to establish the connection between I.D. and Christianity so as to keep it out of public schools. Now that intelligent design has a following among scientists, however, they’re going to have a harder time making that connection- many of those scientists are also agnostics. The intelligent design theory doesn’t promote belief in the God of the Bible, it simply recognizes that there is a great deal of scientific support for an intelligent designer of the universe. Intelligent design also clears up many of the scientific problems in the theory of evolution.

    The response from most evolution supporters is frustrating, to say the least. John Carlson was interviewing an I.D. opponent on his radio show yesterday. He asked the caller if she would be against both evolution and I.D. being taught in public schools. The caller responded that she didn’t feel something that isn’t supported by facts and science should be taught in the classroom, and then added that I.D. is a religious teaching which should be kept out of our schools. That’s the typical response you’ll get from any evolutionist and it likely won’t change, no matter what evidence you show them. So, Carlson asked if she would accept teaching only evolution but allowing the scientific problems in the theory of evolution to be taught as well. Her response to a proposed accurate, honest, and factual teaching of evolution? She doesn’t think the problems with evolutionary theory should be taught unless it’s in a setting like a graduate program. Presenting all the facts and including where science doesn’t support evolution, is too complicated for public school students in her opinion. In other words, she prefers indoctrination over investigating the facts and learning the truth in our public schools. She prefers to dumb them down, lie about the “facts” we have to support evolution, and be sure every student believes evolution is a proven (although not using the scientific method at all) fact with no unexplained scientific problems that would render evolution an unproved theory with many flaws and missing links.

    Evolutionists are scared. They know evolution has problems, and they don’t want anyone, especially schools, exposing them and ruing decades of indoctrination and lies. These same scientists will ridicule Christians for “blind faith”, but it is they who blindly accept evolution while ignoring the facts that prove science disagrees with evolution. This is why evolutionists boycott debates with I.D. scientists. This is why educators, activists, and scientists fight so hard against any changes in text books. They don’t want the truth to get out, because it doesn’t look good for them. They’ve been pushing evolutionary THEORY as fact for decades, and they don’t want anyone to take the blinders off and examine the science behind it.

    I’m hopeful that with enough support from parents, our government, and the students themselves, the indoctrination into evolutionary thinking that goes on in our schools will stop. If Evolutionists aren’t afraid of the facts, and are so sure they’re right, then let both views be taught. Show up at a debate with intelligent design scientists instead of boycotting them. If you’re right, you have nothing to worry about. If you continue to fight it, your lack of confidence in the theory you call fact will be exposed.

    President Bush jumped feet-first into the current debate raging in many states over how evolution should be taught in the nation’s schools, when he said both the evolution and intelligent design theories should be presented to students.

    Speaking with reporters Monday, Bush backed local control of how the origin of life is taught, but parted with the scientific establishment on its evolution monopoly.

    “I think that part of education is to expose people to different schools of thought,” Bush said. “You’re asking me whether or not people ought to be exposed to different ideas, the answer is yes.”

    The president declined to give his personal views on intelligent design, which proposes that some features of the natural world are best explained by an intelligent cause rather than an undirected process such as natural selection.
