Intelligent legislation to prevent unintelligent education

From The Christian Post:

In the continuing debate on creation and evolution, two Pennsylvania legislators have introduced a bill in the state House to allow the teaching of intelligent design in public schools.

Representative Thomas Creighton (R-Lancaster) introduced the bill on March 16, co-sponsored by representatives Dennis Leh (R-Berks) and Samuel Rohrer (R-Berks).

The bill states that local school boards may teach the theory of intelligent design in “any school instruction concerning the theories of the origin of man and the Earth, which includes the theory commonly known as evolution.”

The proposed legislation is at the heart of a federal lawsuit which has gained national attention. Last October, the Dover Area School Board in Pennsylvania approved a policy to teach intelligent design along with evolution in ninth-grade biology classes.

Eight families, represented by the American Civil Liberties Union, charged the school district with violation of the separation between church and state. They argued that intelligent design is merely a secular form of creationism.

So the ACLU uses a mythical part of the US Constitution to argue for the exclusive teaching of their pet myth, the religion of Evolution. It's a shame the ACLU itself isn't a myth.

On the same note I made an absolutely amazing discovery this morning that I have the photographic evidence to support: Behold proof of the Evolution of the Spoon!!

We are studying the miniscule fragments of an even earlier form of spoon that we plan to create a composite sketch of. The fragments were discovered at a construction site and are apparently the prehistoric remains of a long extinct form of spoon we've named Evolutionis A Mythicus. This find may prove our theory that the modern day spoon actually evolved from a prehistoric HumVee.

Spoon evolution - who knew?

If only the myopic proponents of intelligent design exercised 1/10th the scientific veracity, they wouldn't be pushing their trite meta-conversation about reality.

How quaint that someone can make a mockery of the theory of Evolution, yet, have no qualms in believing dates recorded by a bunch of backwoods senile priests who were sitting around in their tents guessing that the Earth is just a couple of generations old.

The religion of Evolution does a fine job of mocking itself. As does its zealous followers.

There were no priests until such a position was invented by the Roman Catholic church centuries after the Bible was written, but then Evolutionists have difficulty with facts, as is obvious by their willingness to ignore them in order believe their myth.

OK then......scratch "priests" and make it "senile hillbillies"........ and yes, we terrible non-believers have "difficulty with the facts".....yeah, "facts" like 1 deity + 1 deity + 1 deity = 1 deity.... and that the Earth has four corners and is the center of the universe. Surely a book that makes such statements would know the age of the universe, right?

Thank you again for reminding us that God's word is eternal and UNchanging.

The problem is with presuming euphamisms are literal in one book, while not anywhere else.

Posted by: Danny Carlton at April 14, 2005 04:06 AM

...or the problem could be that any book that claims to have a monopoly on the "one and only divine truth" shouldn't be using so many "euphamisms" and "parables" to begin with, as to avoid people using said euphamisms and parables to justify their own prejudice when it's convenient for them.

Do you give steak to an infant? What better way to filter the truth from those not able or willing to handle it.

Posted by: Danny Carlton at April 14, 2005 04:04 PM

Truth?...whose truth? The world's religions number in the thousands, not even including the hundreds of different denominations of Christianity---none of which are in full agreement with each other. And even if they all have a general belief in a future life, that is NOT evidence of it's truth.
