[Joke] Intelligent Alien Intervention Institute

Beyond the Firmament製作のIntelligent Design vs. Alien Intervention:

インテリジェントデザインの本山たるDiscover Instituteによる反進化論州法案(Academic Freedom Bill)をおちょくった動画である。けっこう気合いが入ったつくりで、ナレーションはとても明瞭な英語。

Rather than debate the merits of this approach, let us speculate on what intelligent design theory might look like if hijacked by a different philosophical agenda and applied to a different field of science. Come to think of it, no speculation is necessary. Allow me to introduce you to the "controversial" but fascinating field of pseudo-archaeology.



I know this rigid skepticism produces no exiting conclusions, but that's just all there is to it. We don't have to grant UFOlogists the "academic freedom" to discuss the "strengths and weaknesses" of mainstream archaeology in the classroom. Nor do we allow pro-alien teachers to preach their UFO gospel to our children under the guise of science.


Many Evangelicals will quickly respond to this argument with, "Yes, of course aliens are not real, but God is real and he created all things." Indeed He did. So the analogy is not perfect. While the jury is still out for me personally on extra terrestrials, I whole-heartedly agree that God exists, that He created the universe from nothing, and that He sustains its existence moment by moment. What I disagree with, however, is that plugging the Creator into our biological knowledge gaps constitutes responsible science. And if we open the classroom door to intelligent design, what's to stop alien intervention from walking through it?

非常に素直に、Beyond the Firmamentのネタにのって、インテリジェントデザインを理科の授業に持ち込むことを批判している。ちょっとBeleifeNetにはめずらしい印象を受ける。

福音主義キリスト教徒たちは、創世記を真実だと信じる一方で、魔法も異星人も信じない奇妙な人々である。異星人干渉仮説の授業への持ち込まれてしまうのは歓迎しない。そして、イエス不在仮説ほどは激烈な反応も招かない。適切なネタとして、BliefNet - Science and The Sacredは選んだようだ。
