Wisdom can be a funny thing. What appears wise to some, appears foolish to others. The battle between Creationism and Darwinism proponents appears to bring out this juxtaposition of wise and foolish thought more than anything I know. I’m reminded of this verse from 1 Corinthians 1:27:
But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong.
Science, a field normally associated with wisdom, has brought out the best and worst in people’s reasoning. Before we distance ourselves from either side of the intelligent design debate, maybe we should really listen to someone like, actor Ben Stein….who has appeared foolish in some cases, like in the case of his portrayal of a comical teacher in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, and as himself in the movie Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed…appearing very wise.
