Thread Name: BS: Unfit for SCOTUS
Subject: RE: BS: Unfit for SCOTUS
Followers of Abrahamic religions often do make valiant efforts to "believe in evolution", but they are at best espousing a distorted version of the science. The obstinate fact is that evolution is a completely blind process with no aims, no goals, nothing kicking it off, no end points, no striving for ultimate perfection and no underlying driving force. If you don't understand that, you don't understand evolution at all. There is no place for God in that scheme of things. He is completely redundant, a useless, helpless bystander. If you think you "believe in" both God and evolution, then your God needs a serious and radical redefinition. The judge is only marginally more deluded than the average believer; the latter's version of a creator is just a bit further back in time, that's all.
