I apologies in advance for the obviously provocative nature this video has to creationists which it will offend but the fact is it has to be said that it just very frankly points out the truth.
Once again, it is quite good advice to know what you are talking about before you speak.
What is not funny about the whole creationist, intelligent design issue is the fact that the religious fruitcakes are pursuing a political agenda and attempting to use these cocked up theories of theirs in order to exert social control over others -- as in theocracy.
Those who adhere to a fact-based reality will resist this bald, blatant attempt to gain power.
hence, the last election.
one would think, for another unfunny thing about all this, that the current economic collapse would be enough of an object lesson in just how poor an operating principle is mere belief, faith or trust in one's "betters."
time for reform -- time for peer-reviewed scientific research on which to base decisions that involve scientific questions. Religion has absolutely no place in government whatsoever. Period. Full stop.
