Re: "Emoticon" discussion

You know what I meant. How can you give students any decent background in biology without teaching them about how species survive? If evolution is history, what's replaced it?

Re: "Emoticon" discussion

Intelligent design is not a story; it is a theory (albeit a pseudoscientific one). Its stated aim is to prove the existence of an intelligent designer, not to validate the myths of the Bible. it's not a scientific or even pseudoscientific theory, and neither is evolution as it's taught in most scho...

Re: "Emoticon" discussion

Intelligent design is a story about an entity creating the world. And, well, yes, I was referring to young-earth creationism. As far as I'm aware, intelligent design theory is in opposition to the theory of evolution and the vast majority of those who would identify themselves as 'creationists' are ...

Re: "Emoticon" discussion
