Intelligent Life

The difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has its limits. - Thomas Edison

Praise for Governor General, Michelle Jean

[An email I wrote to the current Governor-General, soon to be past.]


Governor-General Michelle Jean

I can only hope that you actually get to read this, personally.

I had my doubts about your appointment in the beginning due to my perception of you being in the CBC, to many, a left-wing mouthpiece and of course your husbands former involvements.

I want you to know that you changed my attitude very quickly by your decorum, your support of the elected government of Canada, your grace and your encouragement for our native Inuit peoples and I might say a slight flaunting of misguided world opinion regarding seal hunting. I was proud of your consumption of the seal meat and not bowing to the politically-correct world view.

You displayed no bias party-wise but acted as a true representative of the Queen of Canada, above politics.

I heard no comments about spending excesses as we have with some other Governor-Generals.

You made me very proud of you as a former Haitian to have risen to the arguably highest office in Canada. You performed your duties with honour and dignity. You made me proud of you and proud of Canada. And it did not hurt at all that you acted as a beautiful person inside and out.

Everywhere you went or every action you performed made me prouder of you and of our great country!

Thank you for being such a wonderful representative of our country and of the Queen!

May you long enjoy your after-GG life!

The Other Side. Is Evolution a New Religion?

Education?

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?
