I'm hoping to someday jump into the world of vlogging, as in video blogging, but I'm not quite ready to do that yet. On the other hand, I was playing around on YouTube today and came across this enlightening video. Thus, we start a new feature: The Friday Video.
In it Ken Miller of Brown University visits the University of Kansas and talks about what was really the matter with Kansas’ anti-evolution school board. That now-ousted board attempted to change the definition of science to include the supernatural.
The consequences of such a change could have been drastic. Despite the fact that board is now gone, another pro-intelligent design, anti-science board could easily be elected in 2008. Thus, I think, Miller's arguments are still important to understand.
I consider myself a person of faith, but I have no wish for my faith to undermine science. Actually, I don't see a conflict between the two. Here's a good example of what I mean: If people are seriously ill, I pray for them. I pray for physical, spiritual and emotional healing, but I still take them to the doctor. Faith and science aren't enemies. They just have different jobs.
