Default Re: Intelligent Design & Secular Education

Good points.

My thought is that the propensity is an aversion to unanswerable curiosity, so it's good to hand the unknown over to a 'known', and for herding, so it's good to hang with a social group. I have no qualms with sheep or people putting their faith in the unknown, the problem is when things like evolution are known and irrational faith is counter-productive or even hostile to the facts.

Plus, which faiths and how many would you propose to add to the curriculum? Where does one draw the line? And even if you don't stop at one, the religious will be at the head of the pack to exclude all others. I would sit back and observe the irrational hand-wringing.

I've been hanging around keeping up with your interesting posts...

Keep up the good work, JB.
