Futile [Dec. 13th, 2006|01:49 pm]
Tony Grist
I've been on a message board where Darwinists and Creationists were slugging it out. Ouch, ouch, ouch!

Such dogmatism- on both sides.  But, as one of the posters pointed out, Darwinism is a scientific theory and Intelligent Design is a philosophical theory. They belong in different disciplines. 

It's as if one team turned up for the match in football strip and the other team in cricket whites.

I'm sure you're right.

The moral is don't read message boards. The intemperance and sneery condescension shown by the people (on both sides of the argument)who were posting on this one left me feeling jaundiced.

I don't feel contempt for Creationists. Sorry for them, perhaps. Also rather cross. But I know from experience what it feels like to be one of the "Saved"
and how hard it is escape from that culture and mindset.

I think, when it comes down to it, that this is the moral for just about everything.
