Evolution or Creation or Intelligent Design...

Hmm... Things seem to be flaring up on this issue with the entrance of a new idea/view/theory, Intelligent Design. Take a look at Wired's article. Pretty interesting. It mentions several times 'materialist thought' or what could be termed 'fleshly thinking'. The last page is a statement by one of the proponents of Intelligent Design.

Also, PBS is airing a series called Origins. Again, gleaned from an article on Wired was this statement:
Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, director of the Hayden Planetarium in New York and host of Origins, describes the creation of the series as a kind of jigsaw puzzle.

"We now have the edge pieces and the corner pieces; we know what the color codings are, we know what the pattern looks like," he said. "There are still huge holes -- we don't know yet how you go from inanimate matter to a bacterium with a metabolism. But we do know what ingredients it requires, we do know the conditions that led to those ingredients and what happened to the planet after life emerged."

Huge holes do not an answer make.

Well, governments will someday turn on religions all-together... Some would consider it ironic that it's the bible itself that foretells this.
