DARWIN OR DESIGN?


I got an email today that posed this little question... Enough to make one's head explode, really. Which got me to thinking about all the smugasaurouses out there on both sides of this debate. Which made me want to toss my two cents into the mix.

  1. Evolution, as set forth by Chuck Darwin in The Origin of Species does a pretty good job of explaining all the creepy crawly things roaming around on this planet. There is a lot of evidence supporting his theory and it should be taught in schools and you should make sure your kids learn it.
  2. Evolution does not preclude or contradict intelligent design. Evolution is quite trivial really, when compared to time and space - we know it happens here on our screwball planet, but so what big deal? It doesn't answer the big question - why? And how did whatever it was that started evolving get here? and my favorite - what would be here if nothing is here?
See? Now everybody can stop arguing and get back to being nice to their neighbors etc. And before you start to argue with me, just remember, you don't really know for sure. Nobody does. Just because your little pea-brain can't imagine it, doesn't mean it isn't possible.

Glad I could clear that up.
