  •  There is no "science" of inteligent design. (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    the "science" of Intelligent Design only exists to cast doubt on Evolution.

    I'm not advocating calling it "science". It is no more than a "widely held belief". It's relevance is in the historical context of the theory of evolution and the struggle that Darwin had against the prevailing superstitions of his time. We talk about Darwin in science, so why not talk about the strong opposition that he faced and give it a name:

    Darwin discovered the process of evolution that revolutionized the way we understand heredity. Despite this monumental breakthrough he faced stiff opposition due to religious superstitions.

    Does it really hurt that much to hear the truth?
