Here is an example of the anger and irrational arguments against Intelligent Design Theory:
TOPEKA, Kan. - A University of Kansas course devoted to debunking creationism and intelligent design has been canceled after the professor who planned to teach it caused a furor by sending an e-mail mocking Christian fundamentalists. Twenty-five students had enrolled in the course, originally called "Special Topics in Religion: Intelligent Design, Creationism and Other Religious Mythologies," which had been scheduled for the spring. Professor Paul Mirecki, chairman of religious studies, canceled the class Wednesday, the university said.
Mirecki recently sent an e-mail to members of a student organization in which he referred to religious conservatives as "fundies" and said a course depicting intelligent design as mythology would be a "nice slap in their big fat face."
I'm not so sure it would be enjoyable to study religion under Professor Mirecki:) He seems to have signifcant biases towards certain religious expression. Whatever happened to tolerance in higher education anyway? I thought we had become more enlightened than this. He also seems to have a poor grasp on what intelligent design theory is. ID proponents are not arguing for a certain religious viewpoint. They are simply doing objective science. And in examining the evidence they have recognized the presence of complex design, which the theory of evolution by random selection does not sufficiently explain.
It shows a deep misunderstanding of the issues to call Intelligent Design a religious mythology. For a more reasonable explanation of Intelligent Design than that given by Dr. Mirecki, check out http://www.intelligentdesignnetwork.org/. I'm pretty sure it is not run by "fundie fat faces." But even if it is, it still makes sense.
