The following is a KSCO commentary. Here is Kay Zwerling:
I wrote this in January 2006, and it is in my book.
On the philosophical discussion of, what’s it all about Alfie, evolutionists, who have had easy access to public classrooms now vigorously oppose that same access to believers of Intelligent Design, a newly coined phrase to describe and explain human existence conferred by a higher being, who many of us call God. These are two separate valid theories, so why shouldn’t they both be discussed openly in classrooms?
Evolutionists contend that humans evolved first as a cluster of cells, which through millions of years became apes, then humanoids, then Neanderthals, and finally homo-sapiens – or human beings – with highly developed brains.
One can wonder at what point did the original cells separate and become male and female. Evolution is a neat scientific theory which leaves important issues not addressed, and many of us reject it as incomplete. How was the world itself created?
Proponents of Intelligent Design contend that God first created the world, then a man, and then the man’s companion, a woman, both exquisitely formed human creatures, who together learned how to reproduce themselves in their offspring.
Every single organ is so perfectly functional with brains like high-powered computers, protected in bone skulls, eyes to see, ears to hear, thumbs to grasp.
Every other organ which makes up a human being is so complex and equipped with deep emotions and sensitivity and the ability to reason.
All in all, the person is such a complex creature, that it is too simplistic to believe that it all came together by way of evolution.
Our country was founded on Judeo Christian principles. Our Forefathers borrowed from the Ten Commandments and the Golden Rule and incorporated them with the Bill of Rights and the Constitution to create the greatest and most enduring democracy in the world despite complaints from secularists who are always offended and want to eradicate every public mention of God and religion.
“Merry Christmas” remains, and “In God we trust” will not be removed from our coins and currency. So, to those complainants, I say “Get over it.” If it’s too painful, check out Canada.
I believe both evolution and Intelligent Design should be taught, preferably in the college level.
I saved the best for last. Think about it. God has endowed every human being with a soul that will endure through eternity. Does evolution believe in the existence of a soul?
