Since we're on the topic of science, these recent hearings on creationism vs. evolution are a real curious case. Is this a debate over the scientific merits of Darwin's theory, or is it really a debate on the existence of God. Come on, let's stop kidding around. If creationism or the theory of intelligent design makes more since than the theory of evolution, what does that prove? The existence of God, what else?
This question of the existence of God is not an academic exercise. Nor is it some abstract philosophical puzzle or exercise in objective scientific study. You can say that the question of some obscure fact may be relatively objective. For instance, you can say, OK so Mars has two moons, big deal, what's that got to do with me? Answer: nothing.
But if you say intelligent design is the only thing that really makes any since, so there must be a God. Big deal, what's that got to do with me? Answer: everything.
When it comes to God, it's no longer a matter of objective facts, it's extremely subjective because you are involved whether you want to be or not. And once you acknowledge God, the next question is what are you going to do about it. If creationism is right, and God exists, then there are rules that should govern my behavior. But if evolution is right, then I can do whatever I want. But then so can everyone else. That's the law of the jungle. The farther away you get from God's law, the closer you get to chaos.
