Intelligent Design: Back from the Dead?

Intelligent design is back in the courts. Again.

The setting this time is the rural California town of Lebec, just north of Los Angeles. In Lebec a group of parents are seeking a temporary restraining order to prevent Frazier Mountain High School from teaching a course on intelligent design, creationism and evolution that they allege is a thinly disguised vehicle for the promotion of intelligent design.

Do the parents have a valid complaint or are they overreacting? While it's impossible to evaluate from afar the intent of the school district or the proposed teacher, who, incidentally, is married to the pastor of the local Assemblies of God church, the syllabus did promise to bring two evolutionary experts in as guest speakers for the class.

One expert, a local parent and scientist, had previously refused the invitation. He is now one of the parties suing the school district.

The other scheduled guest expert was Francis H.C. Crick, renowned biologist and one of the original discoverers of the structure of DNA. Unfortunately, Dr. Crick died in 2004, otherwise he might be suing the school district as well.

The Intelligent Design Course is NOT a Science Course? But there's so much mystery in Evolution and it's findings, that it seems we need an "Intelligent" Design Course alongside, to unravel the mystery.

That said, have you ever tho't that there's something that is CONTROLLING us, that makes us FEEL and ACT the way we do? Is Destiny CONTROLLED by CODES?

You have DNA and RNA CODES in you, plus other CODES that switch things ON and OFF in your body, ALL to CONTROL you!

WHO PUT THE CODES INTO YOU? ~AND THE CODES INTO ALL THE ANIMALS THAT THE EVOLUTIONISTS WANT TO TEACH US ABOUT?

Likewise, YOU CAN READ CODES RIGHT OUT OF YOUR OWN BIBLE, that CONTROL your Destiny!

There is indeed mystery in evolution but it is, by and large, a mystery borne of our own ignorance and not driven by something inexplicable.

There may well be room for the theory of intelligent design in the departments of theology and philosophy, alongside theories of its kind. It certainly has a considerable amount of contemporary currency and that alone is enough to warrant it being taught somewhere.

But I must firmly disagree with you in the main: a course on intelligent design is NOT a science course, and it does not belong taught alongside a course in evolution as its equal.
