Intelligent design

It's amazing watching politicians jumping on the anti-science bandwagon just to get a couple of votes.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Echoing similar comments from President Bush, Senate
Majority Leader Bill Frist said "intelligent design" should be taught in public
schools alongside evolution.

Frist, R-Tenn., spoke to a Rotary Club meeting Friday and told reporters
afterward that students need to be exposed to different ideas, including
intelligent design.

"I think today a pluralistic society should have access to a broad range of
fact, of science, including faith," Frist said.

Frist, a doctor who graduated from Harvard Medical School, said exposing
children to both evolution and intelligent design "doesn't force any particular
theory on anyone. I think in a pluralistic society that is the fairest way to go
about education and training people for the future."

Frist is right. Students need to be exposed to different ideas, and pesky "facts" shouldn't get in the way of science. So I think that Cynicor Design Theory should be taught in public schools. Hundreds of years ago, space consisted of nothing but six gigantic, floating yellow anuses. The evidence isn't all there, but the creator anuses basically crapped out what we now know as the universe.

This theory has several benefits. First, it explains all the unanswerable questions left by evolutionary theory. How did it all start, anyway? It was the yellow anuses! How did certain complex structures first form? Anuses. Second, the theory cannot be disproven. Third, it has every bit as much scientific backing as intelligent design.

The best way to train people for the future is to ignore scientific "facts" and the search for knowledge, and just attribute everything we don't currently understand to divine creation. By yellow anuses.

Remember - evolution is ONLY A THEORY. Just like molecules and gravity are still only theories.

I never thought I'd see you side with Trett Lott.

I am intrigued by your theory of yellow anuses. But I have to ask - who made the anuses? What intelligent design created them? I mean, intelligent design has to come from SOMEWHERE. It can't just be spontaneously created. Sheesh.
