Darwinism cannot escape the philosophical because the philosophical materialism of Darwinism is really the CORE of the theory! For some time, I’ve seen more and more and more attempts by Darwinians to REWRITE EVERYTHING: history, psychology, art, *religion*, paleontology, LAW, education”.everything. The reason is DARWINISM, to be “valid” MUST explain not only biology, but *everything*. Six thousand years of theology, history, art, literature, philosophy, government, etc. etc. MUST be turned inside out because almost ALL of human history and science and art and so on was written by THESISTS of one persuasion or another. ID *does* *not* have to do this. ID is WAY MORE efficient. ID simply reports its findings: all of the the theology, philosopy, history, art, literature, etc. etc. HAS ALREADY BEEN DONE by loads of others, some of whom had almost no knowledge of the modern Darwinian “story” whatsoever. This comment reminds me of the Borg in Star Trek. Darwinism like the Borg has its roots in theology, in its evolution, neo-Darwinian theory has try to shred that root only to burrow deeper into mire. Neo-Darwinian theory like the Borg has been attempting to force assimilate every aspect of our lives. Now science is fighting back, resistance is not futile. ID scientists are breaking away from the Collective and presenting empirical reality. Freedom will eventually overcome neo-Darwinian oppression. doctor(logic) says: February 22, 2006 at 3:02 pm Species 5618. Your time will come.

Darth Dennett to Ruse: “You are part of a rebel alliance and a traitor!” teleologist says: February 22, 2006 at 7:20 pm Keep on Trekking gentlemen/ladies. I love it. I guess doc(logic) can’t be all bad if he/she is a Trekkie. 😀 teleologist says: February 22, 2006 at 7:23 pm P.S. And Star Wars isn’t bad either, although I just don’t know how the Force fits into the Darwinian framework. 😀 Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
