Leading Causes of Stupidity
A long time ago I consigned the founders of the Tobacco Institute to hell. I've got more to add. In fact, if you are in any way, shape, or form part of promulgating the new and vast ignorance called Intelligent Design, you're going to hell. The reason why I know this is that ID is contributing to our economic decline. How you ask? Let the sensei, Kung Fu Monkee, explain:
Ok, if you're done with that, here's what I think. I don't comment on, and I certainly don't make fun of, profoundly held religious beliefs. True faith is powerful, mysterious, and life-altering. True faith writes symphonies, consoles the sick and dying, and stregthens people enough to die for the God that calls them to sacrifice. But I have to laugh at people who are so shaky in their beliefs, so enamoured of the fads that sweep through these United States, so damn weak, that something like Evolution challenges their faith in God.
Really people! If you are such a loser, so timid, so scared of truly trying to walk in the footsteps of Jesus that the proven existence of change in the frequency of alleles over time within a species can chase you away, well you don't have faith, you just have a membership in a social club that meets on Sundays. And if your God requires that you insist on ignorance in place of asking and answering questions using the rigors of the scientfic method, please keep him to yourself and out of our educational system. See, I even said please.
