I think it is rediculus that people are aruging this whole intelligent design vs. evolution thing. Why redicule intelligent design when in the eyes of science it is just as much a theory as evolution is. The problem I have with many evolutionists is that they don't aruge subjectively when comparing the two ideas, they become objectively dogmatic and unwilling to consider the fact that evolution is still a theory; after around two hundred years it still remains a theory. Also one cannot forget that Darwin based his theory (Natural Selection) on that which already existed on the Galapagos islands, and that the last lines of his autobiography he states
"I cannot pretend to throw the least light on such abstruse problems. The mystery of the beginning of all things is insoluble to us; and I for one must be content to remain an Agnostic."So the designer of the theory did not confirm nor deny his religious background, who are the followers of such theories to do the same. Not to say that I don't agree with the premise of Natural Selection, but the big bang had to come from something.
I think this blog makes some compelling statments about politics, and it is too bad that it was abandoned.
I made some really good chili with Newcastle last night, crock pots rule and everyone should have one. Now if I could just appropriate a grill and a large fire containing apparatus for the comming cold months I would be set.
