It seems the ToE (theory of evolution) will have problems with there definition called species. The ToE is a pseudo science and Intelligent Design need to be taught instead.

Hey, Curtis. How the solar business going? Can't seem to connect to your website.
It's coming alone slowly but surely. Next year October I should get an answer on the 100-MW solar farm with double axis tracking I been orchestrating. I've been putting together all the necessary documents to get this project financed. It just takes time when it comes to putting together information for solar farms.

When it's constructed I will put up my web-site and explain my agenda.

According to most polls, you're wrong. In general the acceptance of evolution fluctuates between 48% to 52%. However none of that matters, as opinion polls are irrelevant to the validity of scientific concepts. If 100% of America happened to believe the Biblical claim that the Earth is flat then 100% of them would be wrong.

Are you suggesting that science is a popularity contest, or a democracy? I promise you, it is neither.

No, Intelligent Design, as espoused by the Discovery Institute, has yet to reach the point of having anything to actually teach. The evidence supporting this is the fact their own news and sites claim not to be pushing Intelligent Design in the classroom. Of course most of this non-push was following several significant defeats where they failed to produce anything remotely resembling evidence.

Other evidence are public statements by Senior DI fellows and even the daddy rabbit of the modern ID movement claiming that there currently is no 'Theory of ID' to teach. Phillip E. Johnson is extremely disappointed in folks like Michael Behe for failing to produce a workable theory. Which is why they spend their time and money supporting legislation claiming to broaden the investigation abilities of future scientists by not just learning science, but supernatural causation ... because it will set the stage for when folks like Behe might actually have something to present as ID.

If you were being honest in your own examination of ID, you would realize also they even the DI doesn't take it seriously. It's a stopgap measure to hold open the door to the formation and required teaching of a much more theistic-friendly viewpoint of science. those aren't my words, but within the guiding document of the DI itself. You can look it up easily enough.

At one point in history people believed that heavy things fell faster than lighter things. Of course now we know that isn't true. Did physics change at some point in history? No, our understand grew to match the evidence.

Go back further and you run smack into flat earth, the Earth at the center of the universe ... greek gods brought rain ... Your argument has been made at many points in history simply using different examples ... and never goes anywhere. People believe many things, but that doesn't mean there is any evidence to support their belief ... which is why it is called a belief.

What I find personally hilarious is that if you took a copy of a modern version of the Bible back to say about 1600 ... you would probably have been killed for your heretical beliefs.

Thanks K! Just had to take a break and really focus on work. Had a pretty large project that required lots of time. I'll be in and out since we are coming to the end of our development cycle and entering test, so time to stretch the mind a bit and see just how silly some of the Creationists can get.
