Today's Cartoon: Intelligent Design

Where was "Intelligent Design" when I was in high school? It would have made biology class a Hell of a lot easier.

Just think, even if you didn't know the answer you could still sound smart, simply by raising your hand and stating that "only God knows"; and that there was NO point in dicussing the subject any further because there are things that are simply beyond our realm of understanding. Not only would "Intelligent Design" have guaranteed me a FULL scholarship to the University of my choice; but none of my classes would have lasted five minutes!

That would have helped me with my Calculus class at University...

Funny. But ironic. The Holy Spirit's messages on The Christian Prophet blog say BOTH theories are equally incorrect and human beings haven't got the slightest idea what is really going on. The Holy Spirit does seem to be concerned about mindless worship of scientific theories and about dictatorship in public schools. Regarding creation, I loved a message on The Holy Inheritance blog which said we were all created by love.

Cardinal Paul Poupard, head of the Pontifical Council for Culture, said the Genesis description of how God created the universe and Darwin's theory of evolution were "perfectly compatible" if the Bible were read correctly.

"The fundamentalists want to give a scientific meaning to words that had no scientific aim," he said at a Vatican press conference. He said the real message in Genesis was that "the universe didn't make itself and had a creator".

"We know where scientific reason can end up by itself: the atomic bomb and the possibility of cloning human beings are fruit of a reason that wants to free itself from every ethical or religious link," he said.

"But we also know the dangers of a religion that severs its links with reason and becomes prey to fundamentalism," he said.

"The faithful have the obligation to listen to that which secular modern science has to offer, just as we ask that knowledge of the faith be taken in consideration as an expert voice in humanity."
