I now agree with soon to be Ex-Senator Rick Santorum on something, and it scares me

In a stunning reversal of his previously expressed views on “Intelligent” Design, Sen. Rick Santorum has now stated on the record that he is against the teaching of ID in science classrooms. Here is what he wrote in a March 14, 2002 Washington Times column: This opposition to intelligent design is surprising since there is an increasing body of theoretical and scientific evidence that suggests an alternate theory is possible. Research has shown that the odds that even one small protein molecule has been created by chance is 1 in a billion. Thus, some larger force or intelligence, or what some call agent causation, seems like a viable cause for creating information systems such as the coding of DNA. A number of scientists contend that alternate theories regarding the origins of the human species including that of a greater intelligence are possible.Therefore, intelligent design is a legitimate scientific theory that should be taught in science classes. In a dramatic reversal, Santorum has shifted to the same position I have on ID, and believe me, it is scary for me to say that I agree with Rick Santorum on anything. In a recent edition of the Beaver County Times he is quoted as having said he doesn’t believe that intelligent design belongs in the science classroom. Does anyone else remember the 2004 Republican National Convention when you had grown people, even old people childishly taunting John Kerry with the words “Flip Flopper” in the way that little girls will heckle “na na na na boo boo” to the other girl they don’t like who just fell off her bike? This party has hypocracy flowing out of its collective mouth like the proverbial milk and honey.
