Not the same

Forcing a comparison between evolution, a well-documented and supported story of how species have differentiated over the millennia, and intelligent design, a cart-before-the-horse religious doctrine with no logical standing and no predictive ability, as an example of “freedom of thought” is…

…well, it’s like someone shopping for a house, and having a friend shoving car want ads in front of them, and arguing about how they haven’t really shopped for a house without considering all the options, like houses, say, and who are they to suppress the right of people to buy houses! That’s repression, man!

Sure, people spend lots of time in both houses and cars, and you have to provide fuel for a car just like you have to heat a house, and yes, they both have storage space and entertainment value, but, in the end, they’re just, well, completely different things.
