More Letters to the Lizardoid
Since the “We Got Mail” posts usually feature people who hate me, here’s a change of pace: a few of the emails I’ve received supporting my position on the “intelligent design” con artists.
Just wanted to send a thanks for representing conservatives who are not creationists, or at least conservatives who agree that creationism should be kept in the church and out of the schools.
There may well be a time and a place for teaching ID, but it isn’t in our classrooms funded by our taxes.
Thanks for showing that not all conservatives are painted with the same brush.
I’m a believer in ID and thus a Creationist, and I completely agree with your position on teaching ID in science classs. ID is being used as a Trojan Horse to shove Creationism down people’s throat, pure and simple.
I’ve said it before and I’ll keep saying it until my fellow believers cease and desist, matters of faith do not belong in the science classroom. Science has produced it’s best when left alone to be science.
Keep up the good work, Charles, hopefully these knuckleheads will get it eventually.
As a born again skeptic, I am again impressed by your rationalism. Let this count as a full throated vote of support for your stance on evolution and aggressive pursuit of true even if the truth is in conflict with stated personal agendas.
I speak as a 47 year old male who has come to appreciate honesty that is fast disappearing in this society.
Ok, here’s a centrist-liberal who also appreciates your efforts re. evolution. My political/social position has shifted considerably in the past 7-8 years mainly in my intolerance of radical Islam and its fellow travellers (which is how I happened upon LGF).Still, I will probably end up voting for Obama this fall (I would have preferred Clinton) and we’ll just have to agree to disagree about that. But there is no room for disagreement about science and technology in the 21st century. They are essential to an informed, rational, progressive (in the original meaning of the word) society. Creationists are the troofers of our educational system; they must not be allowed to sabotage it. Thanks for your principled stand on these issues.
