Evolution vs. Religion


General Culture

“President Bush used to be content to revel in his own ignorance. Now he wants to share it with America’s schoolchildren. I refer to his recent comments in favor of teaching ‘intelligent design’ alongside evolution. […] The president seems to view the conflict between evolutionary theory and intelligent design as something like the debate over Social Security reform. But this is not a disagreement with two reasonable points of view, let alone two equally valid ones. […] intelligent design is a faith-based theory with no scientific validity or credibility.” - story
