People too stupid to know how stupid they are.


What is it with home-schooled children and their parents?

That's the first time I've seen someone link ID to SGM - quite a leap of illogic!

There seems to be two main camps of home schooling parents. The nutjobs that don't want their childrens minds "polluted" with education from non-believers and parents who realize that their children won't be able to read, think, write be able to think for themselves if they remain the the underfunded public education system (and can't afford private school).

Ye gods and little fishes!
Let us witness Insufferable Dumbfuckery!
Lady, if the design were really intelligent, you wouldn't be here! And I'd still have my wisdom teeth.
And her poor children. Imagine them, armed with Ph.Ds in Creation Science from Mom's U., setting out to make their fortunes in the world. One could almost feel sorry for them.
Nah.

grog : Yes, ID is certainly all about the missionary position too.

ef : When many of those home-schooled kids hit their teenage years and realize that Leave It To Beaver's Mr Cleaver isn't really in charge, they are going to go looking for their own Eldridge Cleaver.
At least that's my hope.

Woo... that's a tough one. There is so much bullshit in one post it's hard to avoid stepping in something.

Thank the FSM that my new gospels will be arriving soon and I can ward off the creationists with pastafarian quotes.

I've seen a lot of ID garbage but this just about takes the cake. The first lie is that ID is not religion or creationism, but science. ID is nothing but a political ploy to place a narrow view of religion in the public sphere and degrade opposing thought. The part about marriage and homosexuality was even a bigger joke. That link in itself exposes ID for what it truly is: a ploy to get creationism and religious thought in "through the back door" of science and intellectual thought. ID is pure bullshit.

Loved that article, it was just long enough to read and enjoy during my coffee break... As a recent escapee from a mainline evangelical church, I'm re-discovering the benefits of an inquiring and challenging approach to dogma. ID is dogma, pure and simple. And as the great man might have said, my karma just ran over my dogma...
