2. Absolutely wonderful program ....
That exposed the utter absence of honesty and sincerity in the Behe's and Dembski's of the world ....

The Judge's decision was strong and resounding .....

MUST see TV ....

6. This was the best SMACKDOWN of ....
Intelligent Design I've ever seen. The animations depicting complex biological processes were brilliant. Even I understood!!

It's a documentary but it had the feel of a courtroom thriller. And I love the part where the creationist expert witness gets absolutely PWNED on the witness stand. Bwahahaha

Do not miss this show, people!!!

11. Superb!
I wonder how many creationists watched it, and of those who did, how many saw the light of reason. Not many, if any, I'll bet.

10. I believe in a creator
But I just don't believe in a benevolent creator (Deist here + three 24 Oz. beers)...

I thought the show was awsome; kicked some funadmentalist ass back to biblical times.

There is room for science and religion to coexist in this world, so long as each sticks to it's own kitchen.

Those who want intelligent design taught in the classroom better be prepared to learn evolution in church.

:thumbsup:

13. So called "christians" of the RWing are mostly liars & Assholes.
This case proves once again that these RWing Fascists are devious & will keep trying to subvert the Constitution of the United States in order to turn America into a Theocratic Fascist RWing Police State forcing all Americans to bow down to their perverted concept of Christianity.

14. Damn straight
They took Christianity; a beautiful philosophy of love and caring, and turned it into an abomination that justifies death and slaughter in the name of the sanctity of life.

I can't imagine anything closer to evil than that.

15. I watched it the other night, and when they claimed
they were not referring to God as the 'intelligent agent', my question to them, then: does that mean that that 'agent' could possibly be a witch, men from outer space, or maybe even the devil? Is that acceptable to them?

I am very happy the judge used good common sense. Religion has no place in our schools. As a Catholic who grew up when prayer was in the schools, with the prayers and the imposed Bible studies, it was difficult for the Jewish children, those who didn't believe, and even for me, as I was the 'fish eater', said the Lord's Prayer differently, did the Sign of the Cross, prayed to the Saints and other various differences that were critiqued by other kids and some teachers.

In my experience, the most cruelest of people tend to be those who claim to be the most faithful.
