CBS News | Robertson: Pa. Voters Rejected God | November 11, 2005?07:30:08
This guy is starting to sound like our Ayatollah. Surely this comment will invoke some discussion on this blog. I am distressed over this whole "Intelligent Design" thing anyway. The concept of evolution is so beautiful and complex that it can stand on its own. One, if so inclined, could find evidence for a higher power in the evolutionary process alone without having to resort to an "Intellgent Design" fabrication. I have never understood the conservative's fear of science. They should fear what people do with religion more. Religion in itself is a good thing no matter what your belief but what some people do with it is scary. Don't get me wrong. Live your life by the ten commandments and you will be a good person and ascend to whatever rewards there are in the afterlife but this guy Robertson and his ilk really scare me. I call it the Taliban effect. Look at the ultimate evolution, excuse me for using that word, of conservative religion and you only have to remember the Taliban to see where it goes. Beating people with sticks for smiling. Banning the flying of kites. Stoning people to death. That is what happens when the fringe of any system of beliefs attains power.
