Of God And Science

[Media Source*]

(Hat Tip: World Mag Blog, The Immoral Minority)

(SBC Baptist Press) The debate over whether students should be taught about the controversy surrounding evolution, which may include a discussion of the emerging Intelligent Design theory, was spurred on recently by President Bush's endorsement of such teaching and by the Kansas State Board of Education'’s decision to allow instructors to "teach the controversy."

The discussion of Intelligent Desing seems to be increasing throughout the blogosphere with opinions being expressed for and against this theory being taught in our public schools. Proponents of the idea desire nothing more than an arena to debate in, and what better way than in a scientific classroom?

If ID/Creationism is equivalent to the flying spaghetti monster theory, then science should have adequate evidence displaying that allowing the public to move on. But it seems that organizations are not interested in hearing a public debate.
(KOB TV) The American Civil Liberties Union of New Mexico opposes a policy allowing alternative theories to evolution to be discussed in Rio Rancho public school science classes.

The group’s director, Peter Simonson, said Tuesday the ACLU will go to court if the policy leads to the teaching of "intelligent design."

Simonson says the Rio Rancho school board, in adopting the policy on Monday, gave a nod and a wink to the teaching of intelligent design.

It looks as if the ACLU is in a long battle with the courts as it appears that 69% of Americans not only believe in a God, but also in a literal heaven and hell as well. Although they may deny it, atheism is just as much of a faith as Christianity, Judaism and Islam (and may even take more faith to believe in than the previous beliefs).

If there is to be public reconciliation as to which is fact and which is fiction, then a scientific debate must ensue with the victor taking the spoils and the loser sitting on the shelf of history. After all, it's only the truth that we are after, right?
