Intelligent Design, Not So Intelligent Skeptics

Science, just like academics, seems to be impaired by the bias of scientists. It is difficult to get past the strong bias, which can easily be seen in classrooms throughout any American school. Evolution seems to be the big issue. It is a theory. That means it is possible, but there is no proof saying it happened. Yet, many seem to think it is right. Personally, I think it is bogus, but that's besides the point. What matters is how it is impairing science and learning.

Evolution seems right because it isn't being challenged in the scientific world. Whenever someone challenges it, they are immediately attacked, and in the case of the school systems, a round of lawsuits by the ACLU follows any attempt to stop evolution. Even though there are other theories, we don't hear about them. I will get to my reason for this in a minute, but first I want to approach intelligent design.

Intelligent design simply states that life was created with help from a supreme intelligence. I think God created all life. Many people share this belief. But for those of you who can't stand the G-word, understand that supreme intelligence doesn't mean just God. Aliens could be really intelligent. You want to believe aliens created life? Or some random force? Go right ahead, you believe whatever you want, I'll believe God created life, and we'll put the theory in the textbooks.

Unfortunately, it isn't that simple. It seems like even mentioning that evolution could be false results in an attack from the left-wing extremists who hate any kind of organized religion. The thing is, they have no conclusive proof to support evolution. I have found some proof to support intelligent design though. It is called the book of Genesis. If you are interested in it, go to a bookstore near you and pick up the Bible. That's a lot more than evolution has to offer.

So what I have observed so far is that evolution is only the top theory because those who support it will attack and make great attempts to destroy any other theories presented. Now, why would they want to do this? Sure, it could be because all the time they spend praising evolution is earning them money. What it all comes down to is discrimination against religion.

Religion and science are opposites. They rarely get along, and each one threatens the others existence. I believe some middle ground can be found to satisfy both groups. Compromise is what makes our country so great, why not apply it here? But unfortunately, science has the backing of the left wing, which hates religion. Most right-wingers don't hate science, and that's where the problem is.

The left-wing extremists want to destroy religion. If you don't believe me, look at the ACLU. What constructive things have they ever accomplished? Trying to change the national anthem, destroy the Boy Scouts, and sue anyone who disagrees with them doesn't seem too constructive to me. Because intelligent design could just possibly go with God, they must destroy it. I presented a compromise, but will they accept it? No, they won't look at any viewpoints besides their own. So here we are at the start again.

So even though there are solutions, none of them will be accepted. Even though intelligent design doesn't necessarily have to do with God if you don't want to look at it that way, they won't move. Once again, we see how the left hurts America in many ways. It halts scientific progress, prevents everyone else from learning different possibilities as to how we were created, and attempts to stop religion.

The book of genesis is not proof of intelligent design. It may be something that you (or any christian) believes to be true, but that doesn't make it proof of anything. There is no proof of anything in the bible. It simply makes statements and the reader is left to decide if they want to believe it or not.

And I do believe in the book of Genesis, based on faith. I see this as proof, but not everyone does. This explains it for me and many people, but you are free to believe whatever you want.

Science and religion do tend to conflict with each other. Some comprimise needs to be made, although it is hard to balance both sides. This is just another part of the argument. I am mainly on the side of religion, although I do support science to a lesser extent.

I had an English teacher who said that Intelligent Design should not be taught in science but rather in literature, since it is not scientific but "Literature can make us look at the world and ourselves in ways that science can't". That's an interesing perspective.

Very true. Science has blinded many. They forget about the ethics of the world, and continue on, ignoring the consequences of their actions. Hopefully soon God will grant them the understanding they need to realize what they have done and help them correct their ways.
