      Comment: But the Discovery Institute says there isn't any connection
      between creationism and intelligent design. Pay attention to their
      words. Ignore all actions that demonstrate the opposite.

      Creationist will replace intelligent design teacher at seminary
      (Associate Press report in Lexington Herald-Leader, 4/17/2006)

      LOUISVILLE, Ky. - A Tennessee professor who teaches the biblical
      version of creation will lead the Center for Theology and Science at
      the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.

      Kurt P. Wise, currently a professor at Bryan College in Dayton,
      Tenn., is replacing William Dembski, a leading proponent of
      intelligent design theory, who left to take a teaching job closer to
      his Texas home.

      Wise was also director of Bryan College's Center for Origins
      Research, which supports the "validity of the biblical account" of
      creation, according to its web site.

      Wise, who holds degrees in philosophy and paleontology from Harvard
      University, advocates a form of creationism that says God created
      the Earth relatively recently.

      The intelligent design theory touted by Dembski and others says life
      is too complicated to have arisen by chance, though it does not
      explicitly identify the designer as God.

      Federal courts have ruled that both creationism and intelligent
      design are religious rather than scientific ideas. Most biologists
      say the scientific evidence overwhelmingly supports the theory of
      evolution.
