Richard Dawkins, a devotee of Charles Darwin, said that everyone believed in evolution except "the ignorant, stupid or wicked." If you check out
Then there are those who believe in 'intelligent design' but not by a Creator. They believe an alien life force is a possible option for explaining creation, and they're serious. Many may be surprised to know that Francis Crick, Nobel Prize winner and one of the discoverers of the DNA, believes that life forms were sent to earth in a space ship by a dying civilization. As a matter of fact, both discoverers of the DNA, Watson and Crick, are outspoken atheists.
Could this 'atheistic worldview' be the cause of the battle over allowing creationism to be taught in schools?
Objective scientists in the Intelligent Design movement are investigating whether or not there is empirical evidence that life on earth was designed by an Intelligent Designer. However, despite ID sometimes being called a theory, the scientific community does not recognize it as such. I have a question for them: Why would you, the scientific community, not welcome the search for evidence in regards to the possibility of Intelligent Design when it is the very purported nature of science to explore all possibilities? Or is this no longer true?
The Intelligent Design community is throwing out the question: Is science broad enough to allow for theories of human origins which incorporate the acts of an intelligent Designer? And is the teaching of the theory of ID appropriate in public education, using scientific evidence, the same that is claimed to be used in teaching Darwinism?
In my previous article on evolution I covered the racist roots of Darwin's theory of evolution. What is worthy of note here is that he also believed that there is no ultimate foundation for ethics; that there is no ultimate meaning in life; and that free-will is a human myth. Scientific materialism which is quietly ruling in schools is not based so much on sound science as on a worldview that leaves God out. Let's not forget that Darwin was an atheist.
The theory of evolution has only existed since the 19th century. Christianity has existed for over 2,000 and Judaism, longer still, and all religions acknowledge a Creator/God. So, is the debate over teaching creationism alongside evolution in schools a sound scientific battle... or a worldview/religious battle? I think the answer is obvious.Related:

Whether it's Mothers or Veterans who have given their lives in the cause of freedom, it's the month to remember the heroes and heroines in our lives, and in the life of our nation. Remembering is to give honor, and to give honor is to remember the sacrifices of those who have invested their lives in our well-being. So we encourage everyone to make a special effort this month to do more than just think about, but do something that gives honor to those who deserve it. It's also a month to remember history, for it is absolutely true, that "those who forget history are doomed to repeat it." History is more than just some record of the past, it has great value for contemporary living. So we also encourange everyone to read some history this month (and listen to our shows that connect the dots between history and current events), and begin making a list of those important parts of history you want to grow in your knowledge of, and then make a concerted effort to (re)educate yourself on them and mark them off your list. It's also a good month to begin to write down the significant parts of your history for your posterity to read some day. Don't forget, remember!
