Karen at Peripetia
looks at a Catholic opinion on intelligence design
, which is interesting in itself, but also points up the similarity between Christian and Muslim fundamentalists.
I'm sure someone can explain the difference between basing the civil laws of a society on the Bible, and basing them on the Qur'an. One of the things that bothers me is that if either were really the "revealed truth", that "truth" wouldn't have to be interpreted, i.e. the meaning would be obvious from the text and there would be no priests, ministers, pastors, imams, rabbis, etc.
Sorry, folks, but when it comes to civil law, I would just as soon not base laws on books that tell you not to kill and then almost immediately begin listing all of the reasons you are required to kill people. I sense a certain lack of consistency that is important in the law.
