Evolution vs. Intelligent
By Weston Davis
September 12, 2005
I guess I'm just having a little trouble understanding the issue.
Are these people so insecure in their faith, that they get some
kind of reassurance out of hearing their children parrot back
their dogma by wrote? What would be wrong with giving them the
tools to make their own decisions based on logic and good sense?
Since when is school about which form of brainwashing is best?
Intelligent design, and Evolution are both theories, but that's
not the point. Who ever said that science and faith were on opposite
sides of the coin? In my experience, the people who spend their
lives studying, and are in awe of the world around us, are often
the most spiritual.
It seems to me to be a strange
sort of madness, to force a child to decide between one truth
and another, when they haven't even found out who they are in
Instead, shouldn't we be teaching
them tolerance, and to trust their own intelligence? Which I
believe to be the greatest gift we have been given.
