That's what so many people who are pro-creationism/ID don't understand. Scientists who present evolution aren't stubborn in the sense that being stubborn clasically represents.this just proves that all of those evolution supporters are so stubborn in their beliefs that they deny any other form of speech, a given right, to others.
To those that slam Chritains: your believes are just as questionable, if not moreso.
If all of you aren't happy with the current leaders, why don't you vote them out? From what it seems, Florida has always seemed to sway Republican, so democrats must be doing something to repel voters.
Two people can have differing views and when one or both of them will not concede to a comprise to find an alternative middle ground...that is being stubborn.
Concerning science...when one of the two (creationism/ID) won't back down or admit that using only the science that works for them, but not using the science that works against them, most assuredly makes them a non scientific application...we have a real problem. THAT is psuedo-science. JUST enough to get peoples attention, but no follow up.
You have museums, websites, ect. ect. enlisting segments of science to assert a claim that has NEVER been scientifically peer-reviewed...but claims it is a fully accepted scientific alternative. Is that honest or dishonest? I ask you truthfully. It is being hoisted aloft by opinion. And your want of it to be another form of proof (scientifically) coupled with these sites ability to feed you JUST enough so it confirms your want/belief is NOT science. Do you want a electrician rewiring your home who has an opinion of how it should be done...or do you want an electrician who KNOWS what should be done?
I, personally, have never ruled out Intelligent Design...but quite frankly...the proof is in the pudding and they haven't even added the milk yet...let alone opened the box.
I'm trying to think of an analogy that would make better sense to you and all I can come up with is...
...Would you feel comfortable sitting at a table, with a translator who only speaks broken english, to accurately convey your thoughts to those you're speaking to, about any number of matters?
Creationism/Intelligent Design is taking advantage of your believe in God and setting up these imaginary barriers of scientific elitism, adding a dash of Hitler, a sprinkle of supposed intolerance and don't forget to throw in that evolution somehow means there's no God...and guess what? You've got believers in God and Christ fired up...they could really care less if Creationism/ID is actually scientific...because NOW it's percieved as an "us against them"..."good vs. evil"..."God vs. no God"..."Conspiracy vs. Truth."
Instead of them actually doing the scientific leg work...now they can rely on people's fears, angst, anger to have popular opinion MAKE THEM scientific. Is that fair if they're not doing the actual scientific work? If you busted your hind-end to restore the home you live in, but your other half didn't lift a finger...would you be slightly upset if the neighbors dropped by to view the finished product, and your other half jumped in with, "Yup, me and the mrs./mr. here sure worked our tails off on this...looks good, don't it?"...?
