Turnabout

To the editor:

Poor John Calvert!

Now the shoe is on the other foot. Steve Abrams and the gang of six on the State Board of Education have no scientific, let alone evolution, expertise and none of the intelligent design advocates the board used as experts has any significant experience in evolutionary biology either, and this includes Michael Behe, in spite of his credentials as a DNA biochemist.

So if the Board of Education can listen to witnesses who are untrained in evolutionary biology, then a religious studies professor can teach about intelligent design. At least he is teaching it in a more proper framework as mythology.

Of course, a legitimate argument can be made that intelligent design is not even mythology but just pseudoscience advanced to justify a particular political agenda.

Behold the Noodly Appendage of the Great Flying Spagetti Monster!

Hey Ragingbear,

I felt really good about being called a Noody appendage until I saw you use this term for anyone who thinks ID is silly. I am really miffed!

Maybe you ought to pay attention to the ID'ers who admit that the designer could be some sort of alien....perhaps the GFSM..eh?

Yes, the Great Flying Spagetti Monster flung forth the cosmic meatball that became the Earth.

What I do not like about the ID concept is that it is heavily leaned towards one religion over another. There are many others besides Christians out there. But the current political administration doesn't seem to notice that.
