Our President Believes in 'Intelligent Design' Now...


This is why I try not to pay too much attention to the news lately.
Our President, supposedly our leader and the head of our government comes out and makes a statement endorsing a scientific policy that's more hocus pocus than hard science.
Can we get Penn and Teller to call bullshit on this? Come on, people!
The concept of 'Intelligent Design' is just a blatant attempt to go back to Creationism and pushing mythology instead of fact. It's great to believe that there's something beyond this existence. I personally like the idea in DesCartes' "Discourse on Reason" that mankind's ability to think rationally and creatively proves that something beyond what we know exists.
However, beyond that, I have very little use for the whole Christian Fundamentalist point of view.
Yeah, that's right. I'm going off on the fucking Fundies again.
Let's think about this...why is it that all of the proponents of 'Intelligent Design' are all people of little or no intelligence? Does it have something to do with the fact that you have to be smart to understand science???
Can someone please explain to me how 'Intelligent Design' is different than the Norse mythology creation story? Or the stories of the Greek or Roman or Egyptian pantheons? How is replacing science and fact with fairy tales and mythological nonsense good for our country?
President Bush should not only apologize for his ignorant and short-sighted comment, he should fund some more SCIENCE. Maybe some stem cell research or the Human Genome we can maybe breed his brand of stupidity out of the gene pool.
