So you deny that proponents of Intelligent Design are largely Christian fundementalists?
I was in reference to myself. You were stating that I
have a problem with teaching religion based on a Christian agenda and there wasn't.
The UK manages it just fine. I'm not sure why any US legislature would be against a Religious Studies class. So long as it doesn't promote one religion over another.
I don't disagree.
However, presenting Intelligent Design which, lets face it, is Creationism repackaged is promoting a specifically Christian mythology over all others. It is not science, thus, does not belong in a science class room. Why can't you understand this?
See my post above.
I'm not sure what you mean. You're saying that Evolution is some kind of Pseudo-Science? Do you even know what it is you're arguing against? Or do you buy into what people like Ray Comfort or Kent Hovind think evolution is?
As a science person, I view science as being based on facts. When there is this big question mark looming around an explanation and you say "Oh, well we don't know yet, but I'm sure I'm right", it's no longer substantiated by facts, but assumptions, theories, etc. So, while some definitions may still support that as being science, other definitions can be used to counter the lack of solidarity of facts. This is definitely more evident when you have people that support various alterations of the same topic.
So you don't mind if we present Creationism and ID, and then go on to say why they are incorrect. So long as they're presented, right?
Of course I do, because now you're being biased. The whole purpose of having them there in the first place is to create an "equal" sense of an environment where the school is not promoting one thing over the other. It's really not that hard to grasp.
Was my sarcasm not an accurate summation of the Christian belief on homosexuals?
No, it wasn't even close. You're making the assumption that the people don't have any problems internally with homosexuality, but only because Jesus Christ says so, then all of the sudden "it's bad". Christians (just as with any religion) do what they want. Many sin just as much as "sinners" do, so what makes you think they are incapable of supporting homosexuality if they support everything else deemed "un-Godly" by the Church? People just use religion as an argument because that way they don't have to explain their feelings. They can just say, "God says it wrong". In reality, they have their own problems with it.
