"First, let's be clear that where you stand on creation (a k a intelligent design, these days) vs. evolution has nothing to do with personal intelligence. There are very smart people on both sides of the issue."

thurstonxhowell: I did, however, support a self-righteous contempt for the scientific community

Aw, that's OK, us in the scientific community feel the same about you.

The chief fault lies with the scientific establishment.

...and it's shiat like this that made us feel that way. A few paragraphs ago, this walking, talking anus was telling us about how he ignored facts and evidence presented to him. Now, he has the giant brass balls to tell us that's scientists' fault.

loonatic112358: Thorak: odd for Christians, because Jesus freaking LOVED speaking in parables.

to be honest a lot of folks miss damn near everything he did

we need to find a more accurate term then Christian for those sort of folks

religious traditionalists makes it sound, well better then it is

maybe American dominionists

What's wrong with "idiots"? Too broad a term? Too pejorative?

I predict many cherry picked out of context quotes from biologists, countered with examples of biblical laws that would land one in jail if followed today before this thread dies.

So sayeth me.

Lanadapter: To be fair the article is right. I can't tell you how many creationists tell me evolution isn't valid because "it's just a theory".

Lack of science education is the tin foil hat used by creationists to keep knowledge out of their brainwaves.
