Science takes a beating in early presidential campaign

No, that's false if, for example, we serve some quantifiable practical function in the thermodynamic process:

A new theory states that it is entropy which drives evolution to higher levels of complexity -- for the sole purpose of disseminating energy gradients

Excuse me?... I have not stated any theory of mine. What I have given is the facts. Fact: There are three possibilities, two being scientific, but one looking too much like god for the liking of ideologues. Design, chance, and necessity, (like an energy conservation law that requires life, for example, only).

Study my linked page. More facts and history of the issue.

But don't forget that I also said this before you reply as I will not entertain this game:
"is always dismissed by reactionary liberal scientists by way of significance denial and an assumption that it is just an "illusion", due to their reactionary tendency to find god in an admission that any such evidence even exists".

THE ENERGY OF SPACE THAT ISN'T ZERO
"But when you look at CMB map, you also see that the structure that is observed, is in fact, in a weird way, correlated with the plane of the earth around the sun. Is this Copernicus coming back to haunt us?

That's crazy. We're looking out at the whole universe. There's no way there should be a correlation of structure with our motion of the earth around the sun — the plane of the earth around the sun — the ecliptic. That would say we are truly the center of the universe."

Well, I've tried to reply to this five different time, using three different formats, but I seem to have included too many links or too much text in every case. Are there some special rules on this?

I would agree that this is what motivates DI IDists, but science doesn't care what motivates anybody, so liberals wouldn't be so afraid if they believed what they preached. Think about it.

That depends on whether you are a YEC, (young earth creationist), or not, as Bachmann the flake appears to be. There isn't time for evolution if Earth is only 6,000 years old, like they believe that it is, so they claim that god made every species individually and people lived with dinosaurs. Silliness like that.

Old Earth creationism includes cosmological ID, which encompasses the entire history of the 13.7 billion year old universe, and is connected to the structure of the universe, itself, via the "fine tuning argument" and the anthropic principle.
