    Different species can't produce offspring.

    In science class, teach science. In religion class, teach religion. It shouldn't be that hard.

    BTW, intelligent design is creationism. Just saying . . . .

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Whoops, I meant to say they can't produce fertile offspring.

    first off our sex organs are still compatible enough that we can **** a monkey if so desired (lots of other more distantly related animals too for that matter).

    If the sex organs did not evolve at the same time and the offspring were not viable then they would die out and be a dead end. Plus the guy with the deformed cock is less likely to pass on his genes

    As far as the evolution of sex organs of other animals (mammalia especially), they are VERY similar to ours, but regardless of even this, the survival of another species (or divergent lineage on any level) does not depend on their sex organs being compatible with another lineage -they need to be compatible with themselves, and only themselves.

    You are pointing out definitive examples of what evolution is, and the mechanisms that drive it as some kind of conundrum that speaks against evolution.. kinda silly.

    I never understood intelligent design, clearly we are not intelligently designed

    It seems we just barely get by with what we got.
    I use a lot of satire and sarcasm so keep that in mind when reading my posts.

    Originally our ancestors were hermaphrodites, then our ancestors separated into two sexes, then once there were separate sexes the external appearance of each sex could co-evove with the other. Also, admit that Darwin said the fossil record should be very incomplete.

    All based on powerful telescopes, the red shift, and scientific theory... amazing...

    but you don't. and no, scientists who believe evolution have no agenda other than science. i've not seen any proof that that the earth is 6000 years old. do you believe that all the science is wrong when dating cave-man type fossils? in fact, how do you EXPLAIN "cavemen"? how do you explain carbon dating?

    Re: Which should be taught in school science classes?

    Creationism and intelligent design cannot possible be science because they are based on the Bible, which pre-dates the western sciences as we know them. Even Vatican scholars acknowledge this.

    Science investigates and alters its laws according to new data. Creationism and intelligent design are not hypotheses, they are set beliefs which creationists then go out to find proof for. Their methodology alone makes them unscientific. A conclusion should never be pre-determined before an experiment is even set to begin.
