It is unfortunate when a representative of any given group desires suppression of scientific discovery.

Physics and chemistry don't change and never will.
I'm still not too impressed by birds and fish, though.
I have to ask around.
The bottom line with intelligent design is just because God created Adam does not mean God did NOT create other, slightly less sentient beings also.
The snake is a prime example of a being that God explicitly devolved after it debased itself; it doesn't mean that the snake was immediately devolved but that the process may have taken place over many generations.
Devolution, in terms of humans, also occurs at the Tower of Babel.
The problem with knowing what's going on in Genesis is not knowing Hebrew; in Hebrew it is obvious, for instance, that Cain and Able had siblings, in English it just plain isn't there.
That's why Cain was able to argue with God that wherever he went he would be harassed, if not outright killed.
Who's harassing Cain, his siblings who moved away from the Garden East of Eden to build their own towns way before he was forced out of God's, so to speak, Garden.
