George W Bush is again in the thick of it. By endorsing an alternative view of evolution, GBW has angered critics and proved that he knows what it takes, to be a Prez in a time of war.
Recalling his days as Texas governor, Bush said in the interview, according to a transcript, “I felt like both sides ought to be properly taught.” Asked again by a reporter whether he believed that both sides in the debate between evolution and intelligent design should be taught in the schools, Bush replied that he did, “so people can understand what the debate is about.”
Intelligent design, advanced by a group of academics and intellectuals and some biblical creationists, disputes the idea that natural selection – the force Charles Darwin suggested drove evolution – fully explains the complexity of life. Instead, intelligent design proponents say that life is so intricate that only a powerful guiding force, or intelligent designer, could have created it.
I bow before the power of religion. It has made fools of the most brilliant people. How can these so called academicians and “intellectuals” selectively blind themselves from the simple truth of evolution?
Coming back to Bush, did he look at himself in the mirror before deciding to support Intelligent Design?
