There's loads of evidence to support, it sounds like a good idea to me.

Some of the evidence:

Yea, since PBS did all the studies, wrote all the books quoted and did all the research themselves. You do know the Public Broadcasting System correct? Never seen it yet mean what you say. Seems as though it's your decoded acronym that is biased.
For that matter it could be Positively Believable Science or Publicly Believed Science.
You're point is well taken and it sounds like you can have a resonable discussion based on the facts presented...
NOT!!!

So just how literal do you take the Bible? I went to your website and am surprised your wife is mentioned in a position of authority on the subject. According to Timothy 2:12 : I do not permit a woman to teach or to assume authority over a man;[a] she must be quiet.

In over 25 versions of the Bible the words are almost identical.
Agreed this is only meant to be taken when it comes to matters of religion so for that matter, according to the Bible, women have no right to speak of, or over man in teachings of religion.

Now that the sarcastic part is over I mean no disrespect to your wife or you. I believe women know much more than men (without them after all, where would we all be?) Just providing an example of how the Bible should never be taken verbatim.

This is one reason I've always taken the Bible as a book of lessons, stories being told and passed down through time. The words are not nearly as important as the lessons the convey.

I also wonderd if those who want to go back to the constitution the way it was written realize that women would no longer be allowed to vote (since our forefathers didn't include it in the document) or that slavery should be legal in this country.

Now, if you say that because times change and people learn that goes right to the argument that science has (more than once) proved religious popular belief wrong such as that the earth was flat and the Earth being the center of the solar system, etc.

As far as evidence to support creation, I also have great issue with that. If creation is proven then there is no longer faith. If there is no faith, it ceases to be religion and turns into science. Religions by definition rely on faith (as it should be).

Therefore when one puts science against religion, only religion has something to lose. Science will just claim the findings as another fact, religion would disappear in a puff of logic.

And if you want to start finding "evidence" on the internet I can find several references to scientology, white supremacists, etc....

As far as Meyer a simple look at his wikipedia page shows:

Fletcher explained "Natural selection is in fact a chemical process as well as a biological process, and it was operating for about half a billion years before the earliest cellular life forms appear in the fossil record."[36] In another publication, Fletcher wrote that "I am afraid that reality has overtaken Meyer’s book and its flawed reasoning" in pointing out scientific problems with Meyer's work by citing how RNA "survived and evolved into our own human protein-making factory, and continues to make our fingers and toes."[37]

I have a strong faith the we will never know, nor prove, nor show EVER prove God created evolution. Proving so would be the one thing that would destroy faith.

Every single claim made by intelligent design advocates and creationists has been solidly debunked. There is absolutely no evidence for intelligent design, and you're sadly being manipulated by its advocates.

If you want to educate yourself on these silly claims, start here:
