Hey hey we’re the monkeys!

[Contributed by Steve Klotz]

Deep down, in your heart of hearts, haven’t you been puzzled, even disappointed, that the Darwinist/Evolution vs Creationism/Intelligent Design debate has sidestepped the state of Flori-duh? I mean, don’t we have right here in the nation’s dicktip the perfect combination of drooling Christian gooberism and secular, urban contempt?

My friends, your prayers are answered. Dig:

Personally, I don’t understand how evolution works. I don’t understand how you went from one cell and then all of a sudden you get man…..I think [the evolution theory] makes as much sense as saying God created man.

You’ll find this gem in today’s South Florida Sun-Sentinel because its source is Stephanie Kraft, Esq. a member of the Broward County School Board, 6th largest in the nation.

There’s nothing new to add to the debate, which was settled over a century ago. You need credentials as a card-carrying Shithead—which I assume Ms. Kraft (Esq.) could produce on demand—to posit otherwise. If you want the reason that Flori-duh ranks 50th among the states in high school graduation rates, you need look no further: here’s your school board, charged with devising, implementing, and overseeing the education of our young, admitting—proclaiming!— that she “doesn’t understand how evolution works.” Would you want high school graduates to make that claim on Commencement Day? Do you think the world’s top corporations, the nation’s finest universities, etc., would welcome such ignoramuses into their fold?

Why is this stuttering dunce allowed to get near innocent children, let alone play a significant role in their education?

Stay tuned. This is the next Terri Schiavo story.

    A while back, there was a great story on WLRN – ATC (All Things Considered) about how there are very few scientists that will actually enter into a debate on Evolution vs Creation. It was a surprising story since I would have thought it to be a no-brainer… Evolution wins _ no problem! But the story went into how the immense diverisity of life on the planet shoots holes in the evolution theory – and then goes into the current in vogue term – intelligent design.

    I looked for more on the EvC forum website but couldn’t find anything on the story. I’ll come back if I find a link to the story.

    I sturggle to make a definitive statement on why ID is so very very wrong (i shouldn’t be expected to – it’s not a local issue). a good link, though (from boingboing) is to a PDF of a Scientific American article, 15 Answers to Creationist Nonsense: Opponents of evolution want to make a place for creationism by tearing down real science, but their arguments don’t hold up.

    Otto: you are full of fart-air. Worse, you’re a liar and a a fraud. Let’s see you produce proof of that program’s very existence. Ha Ha Ha! Who do you think you’re kidding? “All Things Considered” you’re a poor excuse for an evolved humanoid, let alone one that thinks. Like the lawyer on the school board, you’re a card-carrying Shithead. And all of us know.

    Your disparaging comments about Creationism have earned you a place in Hell. Prepare. May God gave mercy on your soul.

    The reason Stephanie Kraft (Esq.) experiences difficulty comprehending evolution’s basic concepts is evident: She herself is neither fully evolved nor personally acquainted with those who are. I do hope she’s caged. And kept well washed by keepers, particularly under the tail area.

    Sunday’s NY Times had a story which mentioned the Templeton Foundation’s request for proposals to conduct actual research on ID’s legitimacy as a theory. No takers. “From the point of view of rigor and intellectual seriousness, the intelligent design people don’t come out very well in our world of scientific review.”—that from the senior vice president. The ID people are bible harpies on a holy mission to make everybody else stuff their heads up their asses. The only way we should let them in a high school is if they want to go back and learn something this time.
