Why Blacks Should Support DeVos on Intelligent Design by Akindele Akinyemi
Dick DeVos supports the notion of intelligent design should be taught in science curriculums.
I can agree with him on this 1000%.
If you do not know what intelligent design is read this from Wikipedia.com:
Intelligent design (ID) is the concept that "certain features of the universe and of living things are best explained by an intelligent cause, not an undirected process such as natural selection." Its leading proponents, all of whom are affiliated with the Discovery Institute, say that intelligent design is a scientific theory that stands on equal footing with, or is superior to, current scientific theories regarding the evolution and origin of life.
Most Black people who are thinking about voting for DeVos should now vote for him because 98% of our community believes in intelligent design. Granholm thinks Michigan schools need to teach the established theory of evolution in science classes and not include intelligent design. She says school districts can explore intelligent design in current events or comparative religions classes.
The Shrines of the Black Madonna of the Pan African Orthodox Christian Church here in Detroit, Atlanta, Houston and South Carolina teaches that God is cosmic energy and creative intelligence. THIS IS INTELLIGENT DESIGN!!!!! Anything less of what I just said is a lie.
MOST Black liberals in this city SUPPORT the notion of intelligent design in the classroom. This is a hardline fact. Go to ANY (I repeat ANY) African Centered school in this city and they acknowledge intelligent design. The reason? The children will bring up the issue on their own and teachers will actually ENGAGE in discussion with the students. Some instructors will go as far as even giving an personal opinion on the matter. Some administrators will acknowledge the fact that there is a "higher power" guiding Black people in our community, regardless of whatever you call that power. Don't believe me look it up.
Most churches and Christian schools statewide teaches intelligent design. Public schools teach it in their curriculum even if the teacher INJECTS it or TWEAK it in the lesson plans that they are executing daily. Children who are homeschooled acknowledge intelligent design.
If you did not have ANY reason to support DeVos for Governor THIS IS the time now.
Remember, we have Democrats that are trying to remove God from schools. Granholm supports this even though she is a "Catholic."
Black people should NOW switch their vote for DeVos because he believes in the same thing as our community.
