Hey Johnny I just got a email that the link:

"The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything" - A Commencement Speech by Dr. Michael Shermer

does not work

Thanks Morgan, not sure what happened there; got it fixed though.

Thanks Happy; kind-of a cop-out just going with videos, but did make for an nice change-up I suppose.

What I really want to know is whether any of the "Intelligent Design" people actually believe that crap, or if it's just a clever-ish attempt for them to disguise their sheep (religion) in wolves' (science) clothing?

I'd say all over the spectrum Deborah. You've got the ones who really believe evolution to be true, but want to fit it into their religious views -- all the way to -- those who don't believe anything evolution related, but think ID gains them some scientific credibility.

I agree with you Johnny. IDers are attempting to place some kind of scientific credibility to their beliefs or faith. As scientific knowledge about our universe and planet grows and refutes long-standing religious beliefs,(early earth,etc.) religions feel the box closing in around them. ID is their escape hatch when confronted with empirical evidence.
Great Sunday Service Johnny, thanks a bunch!

Great Speech by Doctor Shermer. We went to a lecture of his.. 'Why Darwin Matters'...in Little Rock at UALR... He's an excellent speaker.
