Teaching Creation and Intelligent Design as Science

I am so tired of hearing people argue that creation and intelligent design should be taught in science classes alongside evolution. This would be a devastating move. First off, America is already fallen so far behind the rest of the world in terms of science education. Now that we are starting to make some improvements in this sector the religious idiots want to teach creation and intelligent design as science. There is no evidence for the existence of god or creation. The same must be applied to intelligent design. Teaching these things as science and thereby a rational alternative to evolution is dangerous and just flat out stupid. It is a despicable underhanded attempt of the so call “moral majority” to insert and inflict their beliefs onto all Americans. The religious idiots like to argue that giving the child a choice is not a bad thing and that creation and intelligent design is just as liable as evolution being that scientists are still arguing over whether or not evolution ever took place. This is a bullshit argument. Scientists are not arguing about whether or not evolution ever took place but how evolution took place. This is the beauty of science. It proposes a theory and then set out to prove it true through investigations, experiments, and the process of elimination. Creationists make no attempt to prove their beliefs to be true but instead uses phrases like “mankind will never be able to understand what god is thinking”. I have no problem having creation and intelligent design taught in a separate classroom outside of science altogether but to teach it as science curriculum is just insane. Along with teaching creation and intelligent design outside of science we should include all major religions and teach the true origin of religion in general.

Sorry, I just noticed that I was off the subject. I'm with ya Marquell on that subject of Xians trying to get god into the science books. None of the kids with that moronic level of science knowledge can ever have any hope of getting far in any scientific field. Some of the parents are home-schooling their kids to keep them away from secular influence. Maybe they can later get a career as a televangelist.

A recent poll shows that 92% of Americans believe in God, or at least say that they do. I was once such a believer, so I know how it works. Most of the time you don't think about it, but when times get tough, e.g. lousy job, lousy marriage, lousy health, etc., you get so low that you grasp for straws. At one such point, in the early 80's, I had a wonderful "religious experience." I now know that it was just a chemical reaction in my brain caused by depression followed by unrealistic hope and delusion. It's like the same chemicals you experience when you "fall in love." That syndrome was acquired by animals like us in order to reproduce. It gets hijacked by religious advocates who prey on unwary people who are depressed and lonely. Some of the preachers may be sincere, but many others are in it for the money or the sex. I'm now immune to that irrational virus of the mind. Thank goodness.
