    They're the only ones who seem to think that's the case though. Pretty much everyone else thinks they're nuts.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Perhaps they are, my link however provides many other examples with the same conclusions. Discount Hoyle if you want... there's plenty more.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    When they convince the scientific community, let me know. Hoyle can't, of course, he's dead.

    As I've stated multiple times, it's about the math, not their individual beliefs, not about their persuasion skills, who their married to, where they live, etc....

    So called intelligent design has some merit; however unscientific it may be.
    In our schools some "unscientific" stuff should be taught....we must realize that we do not know everything , or even close.

    Your link provides many other examples and then refutes them. That's the whole purpose of that page.

    Man has far too much of this and far too little respect for others...Who knows...1000 years from now this "nutsy" view may be proved to be scientifically correct.

    Sure, and let us know when that actually happens. Until then, it remains unproven and unaccepted.

    I don't see how anybody could define Intelligent Design as part of science, it just spiritual explanation as why evolution occurs or exists. Science and religion doesn't conflict, so I don't have a problem with people merging it as long as they aren't dismissing actual science or making themselves ignorant about science.
    Same way people can call evolution settled science even though there is the elephant in the room of the missing link I guess.

    Except there hasn't been a missing link for decades.
