DARWINISM FOR DUMMIES (via David Hill, The Bronx):

There's a clip here from South Park that may offend folks who aren't from Enumclaw, but is pretty dang funny otherwise.

While last night's episode (which will be continued next week, apparently) was a well-deserved send-up of hardline Darwinism and atheism, the intention certainly wasn't to bash evolution theory. The primary joke in that scene was the absurdity of a transexual elementary school teacher upset over having to teach the subject to his students. Similarly, in South Park's gay marriage episode, Mr. Garrison tried to pressure the Colorado government to ban same-sex marriage in order to prevent his former from getting hitched to "Big Gay Al."

ID proponents should be careful with this one.

Absurdity? That's who does teach it.

OJ,

Slightly OT, but have you seen this month's National Geographic? Big article on evolution. I don't have the article in front of me, but you'll love it. No kidding, there are at least 5 sentences that start, "Evolution engineered the arm (eye, wing, etc.)..."

Evolution has now become the sentient designer behind the universe.

Like kids scared of a horror story, they believe in a ghost train with no engineer.
