This intelligent design stuff is still going on. Are we living in the 12th century? What the hell?
To quote from memory, more likely paraphrase, a proponent of intelligent design from the article, “If humans come from monkeys, then why are monkeys still around?”
This statement (and the ovation it apparently received) shows the very ignorance that makes it essential that these people have no say in science education. They’re clueless. I’m not going to bother explaining to all of you just why that statement is ludicrous, but if you really do doubt me then drop me an email or a comment and I’ll do my best. For further reading on the subject, see “The Blind Watchmaker” by Richard Dawkins.
