Intelligent Design: Coming To A State Legislature Near You

There are 20 comments on the www.scientificblogging.com story from May 7, 2008, titled Intelligent Design: Coming To A State Legislature Near You. In it, www.scientificblogging.com reports that:

Religiously motivated strategies to oppose evolution in schools started out with efforts to ban the teaching of evolution. When that approach was struck down by the Supreme Court, Creationists took to arguing that 'Creation Science' was as scientifically legitimate as evolutionary biology, and therefore the two subjects should get equal space in the school curriculum.

<quoted text> What about Indoctrinating them into Atheism? Atheism wants equal rights and protection just as any Religion and The First Amendment gives it to them, but they don't wanna be labeled a Religion..Claim It!! Ever Hear of Pot/Kettle?
Atheism is not a religion, any more than bald is a hair color.

Even so, they get their 1st Amendment rights to NOT practice any religion, just like you have the right to practice your religion.

So in that sense, I would agree with evolution but as far as saying I crawled outta that burrow with the mole, Nah, I don't think so!
In other words, you are quite ignorant as to what the theory of evolution actually says, but you are opposed to it anyway.

Adaptation IS evolution.

What I *PERSONALLY* think is also irrelevant.
It so happens that I accept the consensus of those that are in the relevant fields of science.
It goes beyond a consensus: to date, there has never been ANY scientific evidence counter to the theory of evolution. I am pretty sure that you know this, but it is something that needs to be said, and said often.

Well, yeah. But that's WHY it's the consensus of science. ;-)

Of course they're labelled - they are called citizens of the United States. Therefore by definition are guaranteed all rights as guaranteed by the US Constitution.

Okay, so you don't like atheists, gays, or blacks and you're attempting to lecture people on morality? Laughable.

Oh yeah, and watch out for this guy:

Nothing apologetics in supporting equal rights. Unless that is, you don't support equal rights.

So why do you not give a crap about the US Constitution? Why do you hate America?

Um, well actually it was the IDers themselves that shot down any teaching of ID as science. By doing a grand total of zero "ID research" (25 years after they made it up they STILL can't explain what the "scientific theory" of ID is), and then admitting that ID really is just Goddidit with magic but with big sciencey-sounding words added to it. Creationism redux.

Actually yes, evolution is the only one.

So far no other scientific theory has ever been proposed as an alternative.
