Creation vs. Evolution
I wanted to call this post "Intelligent Design vs. Mindless Macroevolution", but somehow it didn't seem to have the same ring to it. Anyway, since this is such a huge subject, I just want to point out that the theory of macroevolution--that is, alleged evolution from one distinct species to another--is like a religion in that it requires a certain kind of faith. This is especially true because the designs in living creatures, which sometimes seem bizarre, involve such complexity and precision that the best overall explanation is that they were, in their original forms, purposeful designs by an Intelligent Designer (click here to access some videos). Also, for information about Ben Stein's movie on intelligent design, click here.
