Crimson Slide

With Chimpy having bought his MBA from Harvard and "Doctor" Frist having received his medical degree from Harvard Med, one begins to wonder about the true value of an Ivy League education. Or is it just Harvard?
"I think today a pluralistic society should have access to a broad range of fact, of science, including faith," Frist said.

I don't even know what he meant that to mean, but it can't be good. And it doesn't really matter to me whether he really is that big an idiot or if he's just pandering to the toothless yokels again. The fact that the New York Times devoted any page space at all to the Intelligent Design "debate" is almost as disappointing as the obvious lack of academic rigor Harvard possesses these days. Uh, people - there is no debate! There is science and there is faith - you can't argue one against the other. ID doesn't even qualify as a good hypothesis, much less a theory. So just go back to watching Pat Robertson condone political assassination and stop interrupting while the adults are talking, m'kay?

Although a vast majority of scientists accept evolution, the Discovery Institute, a research group in Seattle that has emerged as a clearinghouse for the intelligent design movement, says that 404 scientists, including 70 biologists, have signed a petition saying they are skeptical of Darwinism.

And we all know that the way to prove a scientific theory is by a staw poll.

Of course, even if it was the way, an evolutionist petition got a bigger numbers of signers even though the creators limited themselves exclusively to scientists named "Steve."
