"Intelligent Design" or religious dogma?


"Intelligent Design" seems, at least on the surface, to be a really neat idea- there was some vast unknown 'intelligence' behind the creation and evolution of the universe. But wait- I said the dreaded "E-word"- the word that the more extreme Christian sects find noxious and untenable. After all, the world is only 6000 years old, the dinosaurs are a Satanic Plant, and the whole lot of us are descended from Adam and Eve.

So, how can a good, God-fearing sect get that nasty evolution out of the schools and have "Intelligent Design" substituted instead? Easy. Pick a state with a below-par school system, take over the school boards at the grass roots level, and have at it. Kansas and Ohio are two of the battlegrounds, as is Arkansas. Kansas has become the poster child of how to make a state a total scholastic laughingstock.

Here are a couple of sites that will educate, and hopefully alarm you. Don't think that it won't happen in your neighborhood, because it probably already is...

Here's a 'how to' blueprint for taking over a failing school district: Intelligent Design Network

And here's what happens when the locals catch on, and kick them out again: Ohio Excludes Creationism

Happy reading....


(PS: I think that the blossoming of our universe was probably some unfathomable combination of deliberate design and random chance. But BibleGod didn't do it. And to use the idea that the universe was created by BibleGod as a way to place our brains into their particularly narrow traces is a poor recruiting tactic.)
