So Fundies, who are desperate to believe anything but actual science, think teaching repackaged creationism is a good idea.

Shocking.

I notice that "scientific evidence" was mentioned several times but it doesn't mention that any was provided. Strange. I wonder why?

"The pro-intelligent design scholar who spoke at UC Irvine on Wednesday at the behest of a Ratio Christi..."

Note "Ratio Christi" is Latin for "The Reason of Christ". But ID, of course, has nothing to do with religion.

"...told the audience that – despite what they may have heard to the contrary in many of their science classes – scientifically vetted evidence does indeed support the theory that life on Earth had help evolving."

Help? What kind of help? Comets? Lightening? Thermal vents?
