The Way I See It #224
Darwinism’s impact on traditional social values has not been as benign as its advocates would like us to believe. Despite the efforts of its modern defenders to distance themselves from its baleful social consequences, Darwinism’s connection with eugenics, abortion and racism is a matter of historical record. And the record is not pretty.
— Jonathan Wells, Biologist and author of The Politically Incorrect Guide to Darwinism and Intelligent Design.
The Way I See It # 220
Evolution as described by Charles Darwin is a scientific theory, abundantly reconfirmed, explaining physical phenomena by physical causes. Intelligent Design is a faith-based initiative in rhetorical argument. Should we teach I.D. in AmericaÃ‚Â¹s public schools? Yes, letÃ‚Â¹s do it Ã‚Â not as science, but alongside other spiritual beliefs, such as Islam, Zoroastrianism and the Hindu idea that the Earth rests on Chukwa, the giant turtle.
— David Quammen, Author. His books include The Song of the Dodo and The Reluctant Mr. Darwin.
