Oh no, the sky is falling for the Darwinists! This is so absurd that it’s laughable. When Bush resorted to playing on people’s fears to get re-elected in 2004 it was a disgusting display of a win at all costs mentality that goes beyond moral bounds. This is not much different. Darwinists are trying to play off of people’s fears in order to win the battle of ideas, and they have the gall to accuse ID of being about PR? How disgusting.
“I would worry that a president who didn’t believe in the evolution arguments wouldn’t believe in those other arguments either. This is a way of leading our country to ruin,” added Omenn…
No, sir, that is incorrect. What will lead our country to ruin is fear-mongers like yourself that care so much about your worldview that you are willing to do anything and everything to force it on others.
“Scientific inquiry is not about accepting on faith a statement or scriptural passage. It’s about exploring nature, so there really is not any place in the science classroom for creationism or intelligent design creationism,” said Omenn.
Apart from the strawman of labeling ID as creationism, what Omenn is doing here is pure projection. He complains about accepting things on faith, yet that is exactly what he would have done by teaching evolution as a fact that has no weaknesses. Mr. Omenn should be ashamed of himself.
