Monsters from the I.D.

Charles Krauthammer on "intelligent design:"
How ridiculous to make evolution the enemy of God. What could be more elegant, more simple, more brilliant, more economical, more creative, indeed more divine than a planet with millions of life forms, distinct and yet interactive, all ultimately derived from accumulated variations in a single double-stranded molecule, pliable and fecund enough to give us mollusks and mice, Newton and Einstein? Even if it did give us the Kansas State Board of Education too.
I agree. What I would prefer is a lesson to the kids on keeping an open mind, asking questions and spotting what and what isn't proven by the evidence. Nobody should be forced to believe in religion, but neither should they be taught that faith is for idiots or that science leaves no room for it. I was always taught that God obeys the laws of the universe. Here's a quote:
For man is spirit. The elements are eternal, and spirit and element, inseparably connected, receive a fulness of joy; . . .

The glory of God is intelligence, or, in other words, light and truth.
Learning goes on forever.
