More on Pat Robertson

Pastor Jeff has an interesting take on Pat Robertson. From a post titled, This Just In: Pat Robertson is Still Nuts, I especially like this:
Seriously, the only reason this man [Robertson] still gets press is because he can be counted on to stay stupid things and make Christians look like idiots. We don't need your help in that department, Pat.

The citizens of Dover certainly didn't reject God from their city. They voted Intelligent Design out of their science classes. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised to learn that some evangelical Christians voted against the teaching [of] ID in science classes. I think there are good scientific reasons to doubt atheistic evolution. But the big picture of creation from the Bible is about who and what, not when and how.

Amen, Pastor Jeff!

Intelligent Design is avowedly and proudly NOT science, so it does not belong in a science class. World History and Comparative Religions would be appropriate fits for ID in the classroom.

The whole Dover, PA brouhaha makes me think that the former board's underlying agenda was to REPLACE the teaching of evolution. I think they got their answer on that question.

(Have a lovely weekend, Mark!)

Thank you, Deborah. Good points. I liked Jeff's post (and his blog), too.

I hope that you and yours have a great weekend.
