This^ but without the insult
Otherwise, a nice review, thank you (GP, not P)
If "something growing alone by itself" is the same as you building it in your house
I'm not. If it grew on my land, it's mine... Case closed
The "this case" in this case was the teaching of "Intelligent" design
Why not let drug users let their kids use drugs.... etc
Because it's not the parents (voters) being harmed (mentally in this case). It's the children...
As TFA is about schools, let me offer this explanation:
It's not about critical thinking to test a false theory.
Within the school environment you have a certain amount of time to teach a subject. If you teach two 'versions' of it (one true, one false) to gain critical thinking, you halve the amount of time to teach the Quite Obviously True (TM) version.
If the answer comes around to God Did It, it should be taught in Church, not school
...For America. I'm sure 99% of Americans here are wonderful and intelligent, but this is the 2nd post in a week in a similar fashion and it really does not make you guys look good
**I am not anti-American - I am anti-stupid**
No mod points, but +1:lol!
Thank you for explaining it much better than I could
That is a fabulous and well thought out answer, and I mean no offence by anything I say beyond this.
You proved evolution in your own answer (beaks changing etc.). Now we're just discussing the degree of change evolution offers, which is not quite the point.
If things can evolve a little, then it follows that with time (and assuming the changes don't lead to a dead-end, or that changes in its environment do not change faster than the creature/plant can evolve to adapt), it MUST follow, that with enough time object X will eventually become very different from starting object Y.
I hope I clarified my position
