Evolution more than a theory

With regards to the recent letter entitled “Science Doesn’t Disprove Intelligent Design,” I note the letter writer may not be aware of this, but science doesn’t have to disprove intelligent design. That is because there is not a single solitary scientific piece of evidence published in any accredited science journal anywhere that supports the existence of the intelligent design movement’s “magical designer.”

Since ID has no testable, quantifiable, non-supernatural experiments, laws, data or support from any of the scientific fields, it remains what it is, a religious attempt to masquerade as science, misinform and miseducate students about the natural world and science, and damage the logical thought skills of children. ID is religion, and not very good religion according to the Vatican, the Lutheran Church, the Episcopalians, Presbyterians and the Methodist church.

There is no debate scientifically because there is no ID research, data or support that proves the existence of whoever or whatever the designer is. The basic tenets of intelligent design have been thoroughly refuted as non-scientific. Can we believe in God, in spite of this? Sure, I do. Is it part of the scientific method? No.

Let’s leave faith in the realm of faith, and science in the world of natural laws. Science does not imply the non-existence of God at all. It simply describes the world by observation, logic and reason. Christians attacking the scientific method is an ugly thing. It’s time for this charade of misinformation and fraud to stop.

Evolution is the most heavily documented field in the sciences today. Calling it a “theory” in an attempt to equate it to a “hunch” in layman’s terms is deceitful. And if the letter writer believes that isn’t so, then he’ll have no problem throwing out his antibiotics and every scientific advancement that makes his life better.
