Face The Nation: Jindal Thinks Intelligent Design Should Be Taught With Evolution
I try very hard to be tolerant of others’ beliefs. I don’t pretend to have all the answers and I certainly don’t want to begrudge others answers that work for them.
Here comes the tolerance
However, I draw the line at the whole false equivalence of the Intelligent Design/Evolution argument. In fact, even though I recognize it goes against the Constitution, I’m not sure that shouldn’t be a test for elected office: If you feel that the idea of Intelligent Design (which can not be proven in any kind of scientific way) should be taught alongside with evolution (which is as much a theory as gravity is), then you do not belong in a position where you can make that decision.
Yikes! Whether one believes in Darwinism, Creationism, or ID, that’s not the point. This is just another case of a liberal showing their intolerance to any other viewpoint then their own.
I’ll give C&L commentor Pawn props for asking for major abuse
You know, gravity is proven scientifically. Evolution and Intelligent Design are really on the same level. Neither is proven, nor is there a realistic way to prove either. Just because evolution has been a long standing theory, intelligent design has been around thousands of years longer. What makes evolution so much more palatable than intelligent design? It comes down to your beliefs, and what you determine to be right. I don’t like Jindal, or the mixture of religion and politics, but similar to the last post on Jindal’s exorcism comments, we have to really focus on what he is doing politically not religiously. Let’s not let ourselves fall into the republican attempts to make this election about religion!
Except for the part about about hating Jindal and the last sentence, I agree. All 3 are primarily about belief, but, I am going to stop there. I don’t want to make this about the hypotheses, just about silly Liberal intolerance.
PS: I wonder if C&L will complain to John the way Nancy P. does to Bush when Cheney is mean? 🙂
