The New York Times recently called
people who believe in intelligent design, the belief that there is too much
order in the universe for it to have evolved by random chance, as mere "boobs"
and "the forces of ignorance."
were in connection with court rulings that public schools did not have to teach
students the theory of intelligent design along with the theory of evolution.
Courts also have ruled that schools do not even have to teach the fallacies,
contradictions and difficulties of evolutionary theory, even though not to do
so would seem to be academically unethical.
reason for wanting to censor intelligent design is that it is equated with
Biblical scientific creationism. The two philosophies are different, however;
intelligent design is based on the implications of life's diversity, order and
development using the new science of "information theory," and does not wander
into the theology or supernaturalism the way creationism does.
denies design. Intelligent design sees it everywhere. So far, the scientific
community appears to favor evolutionism. Instead of giving both sides a level
playing field, the pro-evolution forces are attempting to censor intelligent
design and call its proponents names.
Christian leader Chuck Colson (www.breakpoint.org)
had a good comeback for the insults.
"Does (the New York Times) realize it is calling
Albert Einstein a boob?" he asked.
that Einstein, considered by most people to be the most intelligent person who
ever lived, found ample evidence of design in his scientific research. Einstein
once said, "God does not play dice with the cosmos."
It would be interesting to see if the
schools that are so happy to censor intelligent design would also be willing to
censor Einstein, the best scientific mind in history, who believed in it.

Among many other convincing tidbits,
you will learn that cockroaches emerged suddenly onto the scene a long time
ago, all of a sudden, with absolutely no precursors in the fossil record, with
no evidence of a shred of evolution ever having happened at any time, looking
exactly the same as they do today.
If the pro-evolutionists can call
Albert Einstein a boob, I guess we can call THEM cockroaches!
