The controversy rages.
It’s something I’m interested, given my background and upbringing.
For those who don’t know, I was raised scientific, but spent most of my teen years and twenties in the church. I managed to emerge from that with a strong moral sense, but still a firm supporter of evolution.
The whole idea of a scientific theory based on ‘self-evident truth’, as the proponents of ‘intelligent design’ put forward, to me is a load of bunkum, bullshit and beligerent disregard for rational thought. How can you test and measure something which is ‘self-evident’? It would be funny if it wasn’t true.
