    Pat Robertson Warns Pa. Town of Disaster

    Updated 8:42 PM ET November 10, 2005

    VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) - Religious broadcaster Pat Robertson warned residents of a rural Pennsylvania town Thursday not to be surprised if disaster strikes there because "you just voted God out of your city" by ousting school board members who favored teaching "intelligent design."

    "I'd like to say to the good citizens of Dover: if there is a disaster in your area, don't turn to God, you just rejected Him from your city," Robertson said Thursday on the Christian Broadcasting Network's "The 700 Club."

    All eight Dover, Pa., school board members up for re-election were defeated Tuesday after trying to introduce "intelligent design" _ the belief that the universe is so complex that it must have been created by a higher power _ as an alternative to the theory of evolution.

    Eight families had sued the district, claiming the policy violates the constitutional separation of church and state. The federal trial concluded days before Tuesday's election, but no ruling has been issued.

    Later Thursday, Robertson issued a statement saying he was simply trying to point out that "our spiritual actions have consequences."

    "God is tolerant and loving, but we can't keep sticking our finger in His eye forever," Robertson said. "If they have future problems in Dover, I recommend they call on Charles Darwin, maybe he can help them."

    Robertson made headlines this summer when he called on his daily show for the assassination of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.

    In October 2003, he suggested that the State Department be blown up with a nuclear device. He has also said that feminism encourages women to "kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians."

    Yes, god does. So either god is sick in the head, or has a really sharp sense of humor, or these idiots are the least likeable examples of evolution.

    Yeah, forward thinking, socially progressive people who don't want to be stuck in the pleistocene who believe in universal wellbeing and equal rights are probably the joke, compared with neocons...

    I still can't work out if this 'intelligent design' spin is a way for the creationists to re-brand their beliefs for a more educated audience, or whether it's a way for the Darwinians to back off from some of the inconsistencies in their explanation of how we got here. I am certainly not a creationist, but I've been reading some interesting stuff by scientists who have found a lot of gaps in conventional evolution theory too. The timelines simply don't add up in some instances. Nothing to do with God as such, just analysis of the facts as we know them.

    Pat Robertson is a buffoon either way.

    As near as I can tell, in many school districts, science courses are
    required, but religion courses are not. So the repackaging of creationism
    as "intelligent design" is an attempt to get their beliefs re-written as
    scientific theory (rather than the absence of same) so that it can
    be included as a mandatory course for students.

    However, you raise a valid point -- the rejection of creationism does
    not necessarily justify Darwin's theories of natural selection or of
    evolutionary timelines
    . The two are competing theories of how the
    world came into being -- the late Pope even said they were compatible
    theories, because Darwin wrote about the evolution of the body,
    and the Bible is concerned with the evolution of the soul.

    Hmmmm we could get into a metaphysical debate here about body and soul. I am not a conventionally religious person, but I do think that the two are separate entities.
