Lisa's Opinions

Should Intelligent Design be taught in science class?      Disagree      19 Feb 2009      1 Point
Steven - you say you have yet to hear from one opponent of intelligent design who actually understands what the theory says - does that include all the experts on this website, such as Kenneth Miller? You may disagree with him, but I don't think it's fair of you to assert that he doesn't understand Intelligent Design.

Your attacks on people who disagree with you are Ad Hominem. Yes, there are ignorant and manipulative people on both sides of the debate - we can't use their shortcomings to draw conclusions.

Your argument that the widespread ignorance of something demonstrates the need for education doesn't make sense. If our kids are ignorant of Hinduism does that demonstrate the need for education in schools of Hinduism?

P.S. I'm not actually against teaching Intelligent Design in schools in the context of a philosophy or debate class, but I don't think it should be taught in science class.
