    I'm so glad there finally is a good site to explain this controversy.

    Ahaha, I hope everyone realizes that is a joke site spoofing the Discovery Institute, the crackpots that invented Intelligent Design.

    Yeah. I almost unleashed a wrath of sarcasm. :redface: I've heard some wild ID explanations, so it's understandable.

    It was pretty obvious after about 1/4 way through it. Brilliant posting. It's a nice combination of what Creationists say as opposed to what they actually believe. I mean, really, nobody could be stupid enough to believe that ****; it's all political.

    I met a man the other day who believed that dinosaurs lived with man 6000 years ago and that Carbon-14 dating is a conspiracy.

    Up until then, I had my doubts that these people actually existed...

    That night, I went home and wept for humanity.

    I met a girl who had been taught that when I was in the fifth grade. She also told me that I was going to hell if I didn't accept jesus as my lord and savior. I've not been suprised by much in that regard since then.

    The Fundamental Method:

    Read religious tome - do not question!

    Only hypotheses in text are admissible and irrefutable.

    Test outcomes are predetermined by fiat.

    Apply belief system to distort observations.

    Nothing changes.

    Repeat at least once per week.

    Under irrefutable scientific proof, reinterpret text every 500 years.

    Watch it everyone. This is turning into a religion-bashing thread.

    Which I'm most enjoying. Carry on.

    No, this is called crackpottery. (and religious beliefs are not the only domain in which it's seen)

    Did not Franck Zappa write a song about catholic girls ? Maybe she just meant she wanted to see you again in Heaven.

    I work with a Young Earth Creationist. You would not believe what comes out of this guy's mouth. He is in complete denial. :bugeye:
