“Should materialism be enforced, or are we, as scientists, willing to allow an intelligent designer through the door?”
Think about how this kind of reasoning relates to the intelligent design and evolution debate.
Never fear: whatever our purely hypothetical response to a purely hypothetical event, it can be reconciled with evolution.
You might think teaching about evolution in public schools is already about as misleading as it can be. Then, you find, it gets worse.
Evolutionists put a lot of effort into studying the small questions while sweeping on to the grand fallacy.
