Bush to ask evolutionary biologists for new interpretation of the Book of Revelations

WASHINGTON -Tue Aug 2, 7:05 AM ET
President Bush said Monday he believes schools should discuss "intelligent design" alongside evolution when teaching students about the creation of life.

During a round-table interview with reporters from five Texas newspapers, Bush declined to go into detail on his personal views of the origin of life. But he said students should learn about both theories, Knight Ridder Newspapers reported.

"I think that part of education is to expose people to different schools of thought," Bush said. "You're asking me whether or not people ought to be exposed to different ideas, the answer is yes."

The theory of intelligent design says life on earth is too complex to have developed through evolution, implying that a higher power must have had a hand in creation.

Bush also expressed support for teaching flat earth theory, that diseases are caused by an imbalance of the 4 humors, the idea that the earth is the center of the universe, Lamarck's theory of acquired traits, that smoking Chesterfields is good for your T-zone, that thalidomide is useful for easing nausea associated with pregnancy, the importance of Piltdown man in human evolution, that the CIA created the AIDS virus, the holcuast never happened, the moon landing was a hoax, and that the Greek god Poseidon is largely responsible for tidal waves.
