The darwinian educational establishment rightly complains that advocates of the teaching of intelligent design in the public school classrooms are disingenuously attempting to sneak biblical teaching into the curricula, as proponed by the Discovery Institute of Seattle, associates there who teach that the book of Genesis in the Bible really says that God created life over hundreds of millions of years, in conformity with the darwinists’ view of the geologic record (discounting that Noah’s Flood actually caused most of the geology which we see), so in effect, they agree on the history of the earth, the only real diffenece being that life was created in stages by God, according to that intelligent design crowd, which highlights the lack of transitional forms in the fossil record, expected in the darwinian scheme, but nevertheless, does not really challenge their model in any meaningful way, rendering that intelligent design movement impotent, being no different practically than the darwinists’ scheme.
The Discovery Institute crowd really has no interest in teaching what the Bible plainly indicates (even to a twelve year old) that the earth and universe are about 6,000 years old, with the legacy of the Flood of Noah’s time, circa 2350 B.C., entombed, molded, and etched in the geologic record we see, instead choosing to not buck the darwinian system too much, not to be embarrassed by what the Bible really says, these scientists who can’t believe the Bible that much, only so much, which would lead one to ask them, “at what point in the biblical narrative does real history begin to be recorded?”
The Bible explains many things which the darwinists can’t, for instance, what caused the Ice Age (warmer oceans after the Flood), and so, why there are bronze age ruins on the shallow seafloor (from the end of the Ice Age). And the darwinists can’t explain why evolution (natural selection) never excedes the bounds of biological syngameons of animals (biblical kinds), nor why they use the term species when it’s meaningless, because members of differing species can interbreed, of which Darwin seems to have been blissfully unaware.
And if you can’t see the obvious design in God’s creation, then maybe you can relate to how the ancients measured the earth, and thereby, surveyed the dimensions for the Great Pyramid of Giza, by the design of the wobble rate of the earth’s axis, at 72 years/degree (explained in article #2 at http://IceAgeCivilizations.com), the method by which the Atlanteans, ancient Hindus, Egyptians, Phoenicians, and others, navigated the oceans of the world during the Ice Age, in search of gold, jade, copper, tin, silver, medicinal plants, and new lands to settle.
