    so called "intelligent design."  Even the Catholic Church taught that evolution is a scientifically valid theory that in no way conflicts with Christian/catholic beliefs.  Evolution was accepted by Rome long ago.  Evolution is not something to be proven.  It is a key part of the historical record of mother earth.

    It was only when the fanatical right wing fundamentalists/dominionists/christianist nutcases came into some power across the US that this ludicrous idea popped up as an excuse to teach "god created the earth and every living thing" according to extremist Christian fanaticism.  It is ridiculous.

    Good Diary,dark11star, very good.  But I no longer waste my time on these folks.  They are radicals and they do not deserve all the attention and deference they have been given in our country - by the media.  Stop them.  They are crazy.

      the scientific validity of evolution is at issue here. The question of whether or not evolution is that "random walk" (more like a drunken stagger) seems to be the issue in this particular challenge. Please see above assertions in comments as to whether or not anything in nature truly occurs by random chance.
