Intelligent Design vs. Evolution: The Board Game

The Living Waters Store has this gem of a game for sale: Intelligent Design vs. Evolution Board Game.
Evangelistic, educational, entertaining.

At last, a board game that reveals the insanity of perhaps the greatest hoax of our times -- the unscientific "theory of evolution."

"Intelligent Design vs Evolution" is unique in that the playing pieces are small rubber brains and each team plays for "brain" cards. Each player uses his or her brains to get more brains, and the team with the most brains wins. It has been designed to make people think . . . and that's exactly what it does.

"Ray Comfort and Kirk Cameron are doing much more than revealing the bankruptcy of molecules-to-man evolution. They have a greater purpose: proclaiming biblical authority and reaching the lost with the precious gospel message. Enjoy this wonderful family game as you also become better equipped to defend our precious Christian faith." -- Ken Ham, President, Answers in Genesis.

I've said it before, your "precious Christian faith" does not necessarily preclude a belief in evolution. What precludes a belief in evolution is the unnecessarily literal word-for-word interpretation of the creation account in Genesis.

Hat tip to Fark for this one. I love the headline submitted:
"Intelligent Design: The Board Game." Because "Evolution: The Board Game" takes far to long to play and you can't make up the rules as you go along.

I don't know a lot about Evolution: The Board Game, but if it's anything like Evolution (the movie), it's probably a one-timer.
I'd like to suggest that the use of quasi-religious phrases like "belief in evolution" be assiduously avoided. One can accept evolution and evolutionary theory for scientific fact and one can have religious beliefs. They are not the same thing.
