Intelligent Design

           
Dear Brother Ron

Do you think we should change "intelligent design" to "Christian design" to unmask the real agenda? Don't you think they would freak out if schools taught, as the opposing theory, that Vishnu created the world and not the Christian god?

Dear Protour

The fundamentalists have no idea what they are getting into with the "intelligent design" strategy. Here's why. Five billion years ago, a family from Rigel Two visited the fledgling Earth on vacation. Since Rigel Two is very close to their sun, it is a very hot planet so the family was quite comfortable in the earth's volcanic environment. While they were there, the family had a picnic and left their crumbs on the ground. The crumbs were infested with bacteria from the mouths of the Rigellians. The bacteria thrived in the new environment and evolved to become dinosaurs, wooly mammoths and eventually us.

I just pulled that story out of my left ear and make no claims of its validity. But it does not conflict with the findings of archeologists and paleontologists. It also is congruent with the philosophies of intelligent design and critical thinking (another fundamentalist agenda). If you think people get upset about thinking we came from monkeys, imagine their consternation about the idea we evolved from alien drool.

The fundamentalists had better think long and hard before they open this can of worms.

Best always
Brother Ron
