Bush wants alternatives to evolution taught in school. Although he didn't say it, I think it is commonly accepted that he particularly wants Intelligent Design taught at schools as well as evolution and creationism.
Intelligent design (ID) is the assertion that empirical evidence supports the conclusion that the initial life on earth, and perhaps some of its present details, was deliberately designed by one or more intelligent agents; additionally, or alternately, it may include the idea that different empirical evidence supports a similar conclusion regarding the universe itself.
Is it just me, or is the concept of ID extremely flawed as a Christian principle? The Bible says that man and woman were created by God in his own image, blah blah blah, nowhere does it say that God created a couple of things and let them finish off their creation by themselves.
Either you believe what is said in the Bible or you don't. You can't go and pick and choose what areas of the Bible are correct and which parts aren't.
I am just waiting for some more parts of the 'Dead Sea Scrolls' to be uncovered saying God really only created bacterium, hit the accelerate key in SimEarth v0.1 and took a week off...
