Intelligent Life

Remembering Those Who Sacrificed...

Please excuse the author as he obviously did not check his spelling.
Is it "sacraficed" or SACRIFICED?

“Remembering Those Who Sacraficed
For Our Freedom”

From the Desk of:

Dear Charles,

As we head into the last weekend of May and make plans for the three-day weekend, I ask that you take a moment to remember what this weekend is truly about – remembering. The root of Memorial is memory and on this day, remembering something special about the soldiers, their families along with their loved ones and the sacrifices they continue to make to keep this country great.

This weekend is also about the remembrance of our fallen heroes from all of the past conflicts and wars. It is a day to think about the families that will forever grieve for their lost loved ones but also a day to be thankful to those who have served and made the world a safer place not just for us, but also for our children and future generations.

From the Civil War to Vietnam, from Kuwait to Iraq, the men and women in uniform have protected our country throughout the generations for peace and freedom. I ask that you honor these extraordinary Americans for their service and dedication and observe a moment or two of silence, fly a U.S. flag, watch a parade and if you get a chance, thank a soldier.

These men and women deserve our ongoing gratitude and prayers for protection.

May God bless you and watch over our soldiers for their selfless acts, as they stand watch and protect this great country.

Have an outstanding weekend!

The Other Side. Is Evolution a New Religion?


Is Education what it was intended to be or has it become a religion?

I present here some links to Intelligent Design websites. I do so only because EVERYONE is taught about Evolution but FEW if any are ALLOWED to TEACH about the ideas about Intelligent Design.

Doesn't it strike you as odd, that scientists, and quasi-scientists like Dawkins DO NOT WANT to ALLOW ID to be presented alongside evolution??

If Evolution is purely science, should it not stand up to the questions and "but's" that intelligent people have raised about it?

Isn't an important element of education to hear BOTH SIDES of an argument and then select what you believe is most accurate?

Or have we degraded to the evolution religionists who COVER THEIR EARS and DO NOT WANT TO LISTEN to anything else except what they have been taught?

Could CENSORSHIP be leveled against the adamant evolutionist community? What else explains their lack of listening to the other side? Do they want to protect impressionable minds from being deluded? Or do they want to delude impressionable minds?

Intelligent Design is simply the idea that there is so much order and complexity in the universe of life that it is possible that life shows a design not simply an accident.

I can not as a former teacher agree that evolution is all about science. I have heard Duane Gish at McMaster University present ONLY SCIENTIFIC QUESTIONS THAT SEEM TO BE A REAL PROBLEM TO EVOLUTION. He DID NOT MENTION RELIGION ONCE!

But as soon as questions were allowed, ALL OF THE ARGUMENTS AGAINST HIS QUESTIONS assumed that he mentioned religion. HE DID NOT.

NOT ONE of these objectors EVEN ATTEMPTED to answer the questions that HE RAISED in the presentation.

There was so much blindness, seemingly lack of paying attention to what he said, that it was shocking to me.

How in a university community could people who want their students to LISTEN carefully present such a poor example of LISTENING???

The only reasonable answer can be that there is such a prejudice and bias AGAINST religion that many think they hear "religion" when NONE is ever mentioned.

That is why the other side should be aired. Some are blind to anything except what they believe. If Galileo or Copernicus were in that lecture hall in a time warp going back 500 years or more would these same people who did not hear Mr. Gish also not have heard Galileo or Copernicus?

Unfortunately I see the same lack of listening on the part of many evolutionists.

So if you are open-minded at all, please at least look at the other side.

Should Evolution be Left to The Scientists?
