Letter to the Editor
Bush said that schools should teach the so called Intelligent Design theory in schools. Intelligent Design merely states that life is complex and had to be designed by “someone”, and stops there. But when you ask who the designer is, they don’t want to talk about that, because all of a sudden ID becomes a thinly veiled front for Creationism. If life requires a designer, then who is the designer and who made the designer? If you think through what ID is saying, you could conclude that God doesn’t exist because something as complex as God couldn’t “just happen”.
The difference between science and fictional beliefs is that science isn’t afraid of scrutiny. Those who promote ID run when you ask the question, “Who is the designer?” Science isn’t afraid to think things through and ask the tough questions. Trying to rename Creationism as Intelligent Design is dishonest, and Christians aren’t going to win over any souls by being caught taking liberties with the truth. They should think about their own commandments about bearing false witness.
