The Evolution of Thought

September 15 10:29 PM

I am a bit of a news junkie and I love watching The Daily Show (TDS) on Comedy Central (even though they dont always update their show info and that makes my Tivo record ALL their 200 replays). This week TDS is taking a week long look at the debate between people who want Evolution to be taught right along with a concept called Intelligent Design or completely taken out of schools.
Since this is not a TDS recap blog and in light of the aforementioned 200 daily replays of TDS, I will simply get to my point.
If you dont want your kids taught the concept of evolution in public school you can do one of the following things:
  1. Stop having kids and sell the ones you have now
  2. Send your kids to a privately funded religious school (hell even use a voucher to pay for it - you can now)
  3. Become Amish
  4. Accept that evolution is a scientifically proven fact and is the basis for all bio-sciences and just shut the hell up.

Then again if you like the idea of a public school's science class muddying the waters and adding to it a purely religious centric concept such as Intelligent Design, then I on behalf of science want something back from you - um I think I will take the scientifically conceived, designed, crafted, installed and utilized pacemaker. I think that's a fair trade, you want a little of God in science then you have to give science something back too.

Arent you glad science doesnt get together and ask you to do crazy stuff like that?
