    “Senator encourages teaching of faith-based theory alongside evolution”
    Interesting (then again, maybe not) how the MSNBC sees evolution as faith based.

    If he supports it as religion though, then he’ll do more harm than good – and just perpetuate misunderstanding.

    But he couldn’t possibly be supporting it as “religion” if he’s maintaining that it should be taught in public schools (as he is).

    Now compare that to this.
    It just sounds to me like Frist is more than qualified to talk about ID and evolution (sorry, Evolution). Certainly more qualified than the AP reporter/reporterette.

    “I think today a pluralistic society should have access to a broad range of fact, of science, including faith,” Frist said.

    I’m sure when he mentioned faith he was talking about the faith NeoDarwinists hold that RM+NS (which has NEVER been observed creating any novel cell type, tissue type, organ, or body plan) was the mechanism responsible for the creation of all the many novel cell types, tissue types, organs, and body plans that living organisms display today. Faith, after all, is the belief in things not observed.

    ID, on the other hand, requires no faith. It’s based on empirical evidence from living organisms and mathematical calculation of the probability of structures therein arising from chance. Not a wisp of faith is required for what ID seeks to demonstrate. Surely a guy as smart as Doctor/Senator Frist knows this.

    Someone should tell Frist he’s never going to be president – he lost the base with his stem cell flip-flop and this wont get them back. The left wont allow moderates to forget his misdiagnosis of Terri Shivao via video, so he’s left floundering.

    Also Giff is correct; someone should advise him that for this all to work he mustn’t publicize the religious dimension to ID.

    Last night I watched “Real Time with Bill Maher” and at the end of the hour he devoted about 3 minutes to dissing ID in a most egregious and uninformed manner.

    Bill needs to take a break from the bong. All that marijuana is making him really, really stupid. If Ricky Williams can quit Bill Maher should be able to as well. But I could be wrong. Williams was bright enough to get a college degree and refrain from saying anything stupid enough to get himself censored on ABC…

    Dave,

    I totally agree with you on Bill Maher. I always find it funny when he claims religious people have a “neurological disorder” or that they are extremists etc.. I don’t see how he can say that with a straight face while he remains a spokesman and advocate for PETA and makes statements like the following….

    “To those people who say, ‘My father is alive because of animal experimentation,’ I say, ‘Yeah, well, good for you. This dog died so your father could live.’ Sorry, but I am just not behind that kind of trade-off.” -Bill Maher.
