A Little Reminder

Just in case you might have forgotten about this.

Aug 24 2005
“In an interview with Arizona Daily Star editors, Sen. John McCain endorsed teaching “intelligent design” in the nation’s schools because “he believes ‘all points of view’ should be available to students studying the origins of mankind.”

Since he is now the darling of the Repugs, that never happened.

I am not the first nor will I be the last to say this, but when we look at John McCain, GWB, Rove, Condi and a zillion others one thing becomes startlingly clear...

Intelligent design?

I don't think so.

Boy, I can't wait for the media to question him about such a thing.

I hope everyone got a least a small chuckle out of that.

Hooray! McCain supports teaching the origin of the world according to the Flying Spaghetti Monster (my personal deity)

Now I can vote for him.

There was a point in time when he may have been able to claim the "maverick" mantle, but recently the only legitimate label that comes to mind is "weasel".

Republicans are living proof that there is no such thing as "intelligent" design.

He'll say anything for votes. He no longer has any true believability except with the same bunch that still think the Shrub is doing a good job.

Oh dear. I had no idea.

It's no secret he's not too bright, but I did not realize he's quite that dim!

I'm not sure the intelligent design thing is actually a viable option when I look at our politicians.

But what do I know I'm an atheist doomed to someone else's hell.

g'morning, PoP--
'ALL points of view?' I don't think so.

f'rinstance, _I_ believe we all descended on Seattle Washington in a ball of white light fully formed and at the age we were as of 8:49 this morning.
is he going to teach MY point of view, too?
if he wants my vote, he'd better!

Another shining example of a "values" politician who shows us that whatever way the wind blows, he will trim his sails to fit.

JM, my weasels take offense at your statement. They tell me the great and glorious FSM will strike you down with his noodly appendage for besmirching the name of weasels everywhere.

(Ferrets are very touchy, you know.)

Kimono if there's a hedgehog in a boogle, don't be alarmed now, it's just a spring clean for the may queen. Seriously, didn't mean to sully the reputation of our fine furry friends.

What's wrong with including intelligent design as a topic in schools? I'm really confused at all of the opposition?

anonymous: one is science, the other is religion.
go to school to learn one and to church to learn the other.
it's that simple and that complex.

two crows: too many times science ignores creation and too many times religion ignores science. Can we agree on that?

anon-- scientists don't ignore creation-- they study it. they have a different explanation for it than the miraculous.
some scientists are atheists, it's true-- tho Darwin wasn't among them. he held a deep belief in God. as do I. evolution and belief in God aren't mutually exclusive, fwiw.

and, these days, many of those who feel strongly about their religion want to force their own, personal brand of it on the rest of us. can we agree on that, too?

otoh--
if you want to hear hard scientists talking as if they believe in God, try listening in as the astronomers and the quantum physicists talk about things like the big-bang and parallel universes and string theory.
they certainly _seem_ to be arguing in favor of a Grand Creator-- quite passionately, sometimes.
check out the science and history channels.
