If a scientist is using his pre-concluded belief in chemical evolution to interpret origin of life experimental data, then that creates a large bias that skews his interpretation of the 'facts'. It is undeniable that one's belief (intelligent design, chemical evolution, or creation) influences the interpretation of the 'facts'. Why then would we allow those who have conclusively declared chemical evolution as "true" to be the only ones with their viewpoints taught in schools? It isn't fair or rational to exclude the other views when our National Science Foundation (2008) reports the current status of origin of life research as "sketchy". I hope you aren't letting a group intellectually railroad you simply because they have more people shouting louder and longer. The science simply isn't there. The belief in chemical evolution of life requires as much faith as any religion. In summary, a belief in A = must be proven true one day does not mean that A = infinitely true today. Origin of life studies have been ongoing now for over 500 years with no conclusion yet everyone follows a handful of nerdy scientists with no answers. That is blind faith for sure! Thx!
