Flat earth theorist and category 5 moron Michelle Bachmann is back at it again to prove that the sh&t isn't that far from the bat with her latest opinions about what the children of America should learn in school. It appears she want's the kids as dumb as she is because she believes that religion trumps science and the Genesis story is somehow supported by science. She also thinks that the exclusion of "intelligent design" is a government conspiracy or some form of government censorship.
She explained that she believes "God created the earth" and issues such as the Second Law of Thermodynamics, irreducible complexity and the "the dearth of fossil record" need to be addressed.
Bachmann also stated, "If you look at scientists there is not a unanimity of agreement on the origins of life." She made similar remarks in 2006. Negative ghost rider, we got unanimous agreement, you just don't like the unanimous agreement's story, not enough clouds and angels.
"There are hundreds and hundreds of scientists, many of them holding Nobel Prizes, who believe in intelligent design," she said then.
She goes on to say, "What I support is putting all science on the table and then letting students decide." She added, "I don't think it's a good idea for government to come down on one side of scientific issue or another, when there is reasonable doubt on both sides."
Michelle Bachmann is the living example of why intelligent design doesn't hold water. Evolution is a proven fact you nitwit. Try taking a biology class and see evolutionary change happen to single-celled creatures and some invertebrates right before your eyes, they're big enough.
If it wasn't for the study of bacteria evolution, we wouldn't have many of the antibiotics we have today, I forgot, a genie gives us medications. I think that this is a decided issue and only idiots continue to relitigate this. How is there reasonable doubt on science? Intelligent Design is NOT science. Why is there a problem or some debate when there isn't one really there? Claiming a scientist that believes in intelligent design is some sort of victory for religion is absurd. It just means they have a religious faith of some kind, not that they don't believe in science, which is a subject that apparently the corn dog deep throater has no knowledge of or any intellectual curiosity in. Does that influence their work? Highly unlikely.
One of the essences of science is that its findings can be used to make predictions, such as the length of time before the sun burns out, the trajectory and timing of comets, and the exact time and location of the path of totality for solar eclipses many years before they occur. For those who regard creationism as science, please provide one prediction derived from your "science" (that isn't dependent on traditional science). If you can't, it's not science. Period. Not when the second, third coming of Jesus will be, the opening of the 7 seals, figuring out who the Anthchrist is, and hating people who aren't just like us. Religion should be discussed in a religion class, not a science class. Intelligent Design is no more scientific than the theory that the world rests on the back of a giant turtle being in an astronomy class.
If we are to treat religious concepts as having the same status as scientific concepts, virtually every scientific finding would have to be overturned. Geology classes would have to include the idea that the earth was created in a week, and all DNA would need to show evidence of a single set of parents. In other words, every invention that is based on science must be an illusion--it does not exist. We are walking around in a dream.
Michelle Bachmann's a dangerous demagogue, a science denier and a sophist leading the gullible, the zealots and the dumb. If you believe that Creationism is the same as Science, then yes, I mean you.
Let's let students decide that standing in a tub of water while holding on to a live electric wire and see if it's OK ... this woman is stupid and so are her followers.
