“We the undersigned, Christian clergy from many different traditions, believe that the timeless truths of the Bible and the discoveries of modern science may comfortably coexist. We believe that the theory of evolution is a foundational scientific truth, one that has stood up to rigorous scrutinyI see whales completely different Doctor. I don’t see a flawed design. If they had gills we wouldn’t get the chance to see them come up to the surface in all their grander.
Not to mention these mammals are extremely intelligent with their own language.
Sharks are preprogrammed biological robots. At sea world you don’t see sharks doing tricks. They’re just not trainable. Dolphins and whales are the opposite. They’re capable of doing a lot of things including communicating with humans.
How many sharks have you seen play basketball? I’ve see dolphins play it at sea world. I’ve never seen a shark do that.
and upon which much of human knowledge and achievement rests. To reject this truth or to treat it as ’one theory among others’ is to deliberately embrace scientific ignorance and transmit such ignorance to our children. We believe that among God’s good gifts are human minds capable of critical
thought and that the failure to fully employ this gift is a rejection of the will of our Creator.... We urge school board members to preserve the integrity of the science curriculum by affirming the teaching of the theory of evolution as a core component of human knowledge. We ask that science
remain science and that religion remain religion, two very different, but complementary, forms of truth.”
