But don't mock me for believing that a universe so magnificent and life so perfect could only be the result of intelligent design.
No one on this board has mocked anyone for their religious beliefs, let's make that clear from the get-go. On the origin of the universe, I have long disagreed with a number of people on this board about the plausibility of them, but there sure as hell isn't any mocking going down. That's just what most Christians automatically go to; if Christian beliefs are discussed and subsequently challenged for their plausibility, they play the victim card to avoid further discussion. (When they have never been the victim, especially not in this country. )
As for ID being the only result for our universe, that's hardly the most plausible position to arrive at, but as you've made clear, you don't want to debate it, and I'll respect that.
ETA: Btw, we've arrived at a topic that I actually back Willard Romney on. http://thecaucus.blo...s-on-evolution/
“In my opinion, the science class is where to teach evolution, or if there are other scientific thoughts that need to be discussed,” he said. “If we’re going to talk about more philosophical matters, like why it was created, and was there an intelligent designer behind it, that’s for the religion class or philosophy class or social studies
