I really hope you're exaggerating here. But...maybe it's
time for a real Scopes II trial. This has been brewing
for a while. I think the creationists don't realize that
they're waking the sleeping giant that is the scientific
community. It should be great fun to watch Phillip Johnson,
Michael Behe, and David Berlinski crushed like the bugs
they are in a public squishing.
