Protecting the Faith
RenewAmerica, the website for the portion of the Religious Right that can't handle all the three syllable words they might encounter in WorldNetDaily, shows once again that most people, particularly ID's advocates, can see right through the obfuscation of the Discovery Institute about the identity of the "Designer":
The debate between Intelligent Design and Darwinism is not allowed in our public school classes — but it should be. It is clear to believers that humankind is the masterpiece of God's work. Only people have minds that can critically think and deduce complex things. Only the human heart has the capacity to fall in love and understand and appreciate the joys of intimacy. According to scripture, God made woman for man for his divine purposes. Passion between a husband and wife is a gift from The Almighty. Animals procreate, while people enjoy transcendent relationships and raise closely-connected families.
It's bewildering that well-educated people should believe so ardently in this unproven science. This godless teaching is foisted upon our society as though it were empirically-demonstrated fact.
I guess it's comfortable to have one's mind welded shut.
