Intelligence Decline

President Bush suggested that teaching Intelligent Design in public schools makes a lot of sense:

President Bush said Monday that he believed schools should discuss “intelligent design” alongside evolution when teaching students about the creation of life.

During a round-table interview with reporters from five Texas newspapers, Bush declined to go into detail about his personal views of the origin of life.

But he said students should learn about each explanation, Knight Ridder Newspapers reported.

“I think that part of education is to expose people to different schools of thought,” Bush said.

“You’re asking me whether or not people ought to be exposed to different ideas, the answer is yes,” the president said.

Proponents of intelligent design say life on Earth is too complex to have developed through evolution, implying that a higher power must have had a hand in creation.

Maybe this is all just a trick to get us to be more religious. Every time I read one of these stories, I find myself praying to god it’s a joke.

Concentration is important!
