Judgment Day: Intelligent Design on Trial (Documentary)
This documentary was posted a couple of weeks ago in some thread (don't remember who or where) and I finally got around to watch it last night. Thanks to whoever you are. This was one of the most interesting documentaries I have seen in a while and it definitely deserves it's own thread.

A couple of paragraphs from the PBS site:

In 2004, the Dover school board ordered science teachers to read a statement to high school biology students suggesting that there is an alternative to Darwin's theory of evolution called intelligent design, the idea that life is too complex to have evolved naturally and therefore must have been designed by an intelligent agent. The teachers refused to comply. Later, parents opposed to intelligent design filed a lawsuit in federal court accusing the school board of violating the constitutional separation of church and state.

This documentary presents trial reenactments based on court transcripts and interviews with key participants, the arguments by lawyers and expert witnesses in riveting detail and provides an eye-opening crash course on questions such as 'What is evolution?' and 'Is intelligent design a scientifically valid alternative?'

This documentary is already four years old but considering the threads on GLP, it is still a hot topic.



If you have a couple of hours to kill, watch it. If not, save it to your favorites and watch it whenever it suits you.

Yup, shows the intelligence level when something as absurd as evolution is actually accepted as truth.

Here ya go unfortunately most people could care less about rational thinking:

What Were the Odds For Evolution?

Borel's law of probability states that if the odds of an event happening are worse than 1 in1*10^50, then that event will NEVER HAPPEN.

Dr. Harold Morowitz, former professor of biophysics at Yale University, estimated thatthe probability of the chance formation of the smallest, simplest form of living organismknown is 1 out of 10^340,000,000. One out of ten to the 340 millionth power isunimaginable odds. This large figure is a "1" followed by 340,000,000 zeroes. As you cansee, Morowitz' odds against even the simplest life evolving were infinitely more than1*10^50, making them impossible.

The very popular evolutionist, Dr. Carl Sagan of Cornell University, figured even steeper odds against the simplest life beginning naturally on a planet such as earth. According toSagan, the probability would be about 1 out of 10^2,000,000,000. Try to imagine ten tothe 2 billionth power. Pretty astounding odds. Interestingly, these impossible odds againstevolution came from one of the most prominent evolutionists of our time.

According to evolutionists, we just got lucky. However, the odds against this luck have been shown above. Borel's law of probability should have been enough to refuteevolution completely, but I know that the evolutionary "intellectuals" need more convincing data.
